Re: [DMCForum] Re: Registration

Sounds good to me.  I understand about the updates - he does an excellent job with the site!  Now, I take it we'll be looking at the November '06 timeframe this time around, correct?

          Hi Mike,

I am afraid you cannot register for the show as early as you can for 
the hotel (I should have made that more clear). What I meant to say 
was that there is no reason not to register for the show as soon as 
registrations open. Gary needs to prepare the website for 
registrations, and last time it opened on November 1, which gives 
everyone plenty of time for everyone to register.
