Noreastcon Update

Hi everyone,

This just in from John Nickerson regarding this years event.

By the time we all show up, the hotels name will have been changed to the The Hotel - Marlborough. The same staff and amenities, just a new name. Also regarding the hotel, the hotel discount rate for rooms ends on April 28. There are plenty of rooms still available. Call the Radisson, Marlborough, MA directly at 508-480-0015 ext. 178 or 136. Ask for the Noreastcon discount

John also tells me that there are a number of trophy sponsorships left open. I guess y'all like to hear me beg and plead!! Please consider sponsoring at the premier event in our region. These folks are working hard to make a great event for us. Lets help them by sponsoring. The cost is very reasonable at $35.00 I can't stress enough how important it is to help.

One final thing John passed along relates to the banquet. Tickets for the meal have to be purchased in advance and no tickets will be available at the show prior to the meal. The menu features an "Italian Buffet" and promises to be very good. If anyone is planning to attend, and doesn't have their tickets yet, don't delay in getting them.

I'd also like to mention that each chapter should plan to have a representative at the Region 1 Business Meeting to be held Saturday morning. Check the time at the event for location. We'll be discussing a number of things that every chapter will want information on, and input into any decisions that are made. This is your chance to speak up and be heard. Plus, it's a chance to break my stones in person, who wouldn't want a crack at that!!!! I break stones back, so be forewarned!!! :-))

Not much on the National scene to report at this time. The next issue of the Journal will be hitting mailbox's soon. I hear our collective sox will be knocked off by the changes we'll be seeing, so keep your eyes peeled!!
With that, I'll close by asking to share this with the officers and members of your chapter. Until the next begging and pleading session, that is all!!

Doug Hamilton
Region 1 Coordinator
