Sorry to hear you can't make it, but congradulations on your job!
I got kind of a promotion myself this past weekend.
Next year maybe we should plan it upi your way or in Toronto or something.
We need to make plans early for next year.
Again, nice going!

I am sad to tell you this, Gary and al, but I won't be able to make to UPG
Shame, shame, shame...
However, the reason is interesting: I just found a new job and my first
weeks of training are to be held in Paris, France...
I know, I know, it's not easy but someone has to do it...
In fact, I now work for a US-based IT consultant firm called Computer
Horizons and the client I work for is Renault, yes yes, the car
Our job is to produce some computer-based training so Renault can evaluate
and train their technicians for the new technologies found in the newer
VERY interesting project, with a huge envelope, for a few years. I am one of
the "subject matter experts".
Why in Montreal?
1- Because we speak French;
2- Because we have the technological skills:
3- Because it's cheaper, by a wide margin.
So any comments about Canada being a third world country might be true. But
I won't accept any comments about this. Period. (TIC)
Regarding the UPG 2004, everything might not be loss: I know of a guy,
presently stuck in Indianapolis with a blown alternator in his 4KQ, that
might bring my urQ to UPG 2004. His own personal urQ will not be ready for
the drive, unless God himself take care of the project, so this way half of
the Montreal players will be there; 1 car and 1 guy.
I hope you guys will have a terrific UPG, while I am stuck in Paris (or in
"Je suis vraiment désolé de ne pouvoir assister à notre petite réunion
annuelle, mais mon cour et ma voiture y seront!"
(phrase to be pronounced with your best French accent).

The date is coming up fast now. I have recieved some payments, but would
like as many as possible by the 2nd so I can get a good idea of attendees to
judge the table and chair rentals and the amount of food preparation.
