  Most Unigroup meetings are open to the public!

  To REGISTER for this event, please RSVP by using the Unigroup
  Registration Page:
http://www.unigroup.org/unigroup-rsvp.html

  This will allow us to automate the registration process.
  (Registration will also add you to our mailing list.)
  Please avoid Emailed RSVPs.

  Please continue to check the Unigroup web site and meeting page,
  for any last minute updates concerning this meeting.  If you
  registered for this meeting, please check your Email for any last
  minute announcements as the meeting approaches.  Also make sure
  any anti-spam white-lists are updated to _ALLOW_ Unigroup traffic!
  If you block Unigroup Emails, your address will be dropped from
  our mailing list.

  Also, if you have an interest in Unigroup, be sure to receive
  Unigroup information DIRECTLY from Unigroup, via direct receipt
  of Emails and by visiting the Unigroup Web Site.  NO OTHER SOURCE
  provides timely, accurate and complete Unigroup information.

  Please RSVP as soon as possible, preferably at least 2-3 days
  prior to the meeting date, so we can plan the food order.
  RSVP deadline is usually the night before the meeting day.

  Note: RSVP is requested for this location to make sure the guard
        will let you into the building.  RSVP also helps us to
        properly plan the meeting (food, drinks, handouts,
        seating, etc.) and speed up your sign-in at the meeting.
        If you forget to RSVP prior to the meeting day, you may
        still be able to show up and attend our meeting, however,
        we cannot guarantee what building security will do if
        you are "not on the list".

  -------------------------------------------------------------------

  Giveaways:
  ----------

  Addison-Wesley Professional/Prentice Hall PTR, and O'Reilly have
  been kind enough to provide us with review copies of some of their
  books, which we will continue to raffle off as giveaways at our
  meetings.  The publishers always ask that the persons receiving
  the books provide a review and/or feedback about their books.

  Unigroup would like to thank both companies for the support
  provided by their User Group programs.

  As always, all of the books will be available for review at the
  start of the meeting.

  We hope to have copies of Oracle/Sun Solaris Install Media too.

  -------------------------------------------------------------------

  Fee Schedule:
  -------------

  Unigroup is a Professional Technical Organization and User Group,
  and its members pay a yearly membership fee.  For Unigroup members,
  there is usually no additional charges (ie. no meeting fees) during
  their membership year.  Non-members who wish to attend Unigroup
  meetings are usually required to pay a "Single Meeting Fee".

      Yearly Membership (includes all meetings):      $ 50.00
      Student Yearly Membership (with current! ID):   $ 25.00
      Non-Member Single Meeting Fee:                  $ 20.00
      Non-Member Student Single Meeting (with! ID):   $  5.00

    * Payment Methods: Cash, Check, American Express.

    ! Students: We are looking for proof that you are
      currently enrolled in classes (rather than working
      full-time), and as such, your Student ID should show
      a CURRENT date.  We have been presented Student IDs
      containing NO dates whatsoever, and in the
      current environment, perpetual/non-expiring access
      to university facilities just does not feel right.
      If your ID contains no date, please bring
      additional proof of current enrollment.  Thanks,

  NOTE: Simply receiving Unigroup Email Announcements does
        NOT indicate membership in Unigroup.

  Members: Remember to bring your Unigroup membership card with
           you to the meeting, to confirm your yearly renewal date!

  -------------------------------------------------------------------

  Food:
  -----

  Complimentary Food and Refreshments will be served.

  This normally includes "wraps" such as turkey, roast beef,
  chicken, tuna and grilled vegetables as well as assorted salads
  (potato, tossed, pasta, etc), cookies, brownies, bottled water
  and assorted SOFT beverages.
