I have received a bid from Crowne Plaza near SFO. It compares relatively
favorably with the Dallas event. I expect to see a few more from near SFO.
I have sent in a letter to Santa Clara Convention Center.
Mike Cheponis has said that he is interested in helping out. Is anybody
else interested? You can reply to me directly.
