Information on November Meeting in Dallas

I had a couple false starts setting up this meeting. It was   
originally contracted with the Dallas Sheraton, but they went out of   
business after the terrorist attacks. So we've now got the meeting   
set up at the Westin Hotel.   
Here is the information needed to make reservations and travel plans.   
Dates: November 28 (all day) and till noon November 29   
Where: Westin Park Central Hotel (Dallas)   
       The number to call to make reservations is 972-385-3000.   
       The room rate is $89/night plus tax.  The block of rooms   
       is registered under Scalable Systems Software.   
       The cut-off date for accepting reservations for the   
       block of rooms is November 26, 2001.   
If you see I have left someone off this email, feel free to   
forward this information to them.   
Let me or my secretary Lora Wolfe    
know if you have any questions or problems.   
Best wishes,   
Al Geist
