TO: 	Participants of TUG2003


This is a gentler reminder that the deadline for discount rates at the
Outrigger Hotel is May 19th, 2003
Please try to register before that date.  
Accommodation is $145.00 per night (+taxes) per room for 1-2 people

If for some reason you need to wait to make your reseravation 
because of Visas or other matters, 
please let us know when you expect to confirm your participation.

It is highly recommended that participants stay at the                  
Outrigger Waikoloa Resort for the best hotel rates in the area,                
convenience of networking together, and fostering a TeX community spirit. 
If for some reason you are _not_ intending  to stay at the Outrigger would 
you kindly notify us.

If you are planning to share accommodation and  have already found a 
roommate of your choice, please let me know so I can remove your name off the list
at http://www.tug.org/tug2003/sharing.html

If you have already made a reservation and are still in serach of a 
roommate, or you are willing to share your room to save on expenses,
please write to me at tug2003-pr at tug.org
and I will try to coordinate and post the remaining requests.

It would help us greatly if everyone is  pre-registered for the 
conference no later than July 10, 2003. We need to have your full
coordinates and confirmation that you plan to attend.
Hotel catering needs to be notified of our numbers.
