Friday's sponsored by the Oxford Internet Institute.

** If there is sufficient interest, there will be brewery tours on Wednesday afternoon.

** Saturday's blow-out banquet will be at the Harley-Davidson Museum, be sure to register for this, as it is NOT INCLUDED in your registration fees.

** As noted in a previous message if you need the conference rate for any surrounding dates, please let me know and I can assist you.
