Registration Follow-up

Just a quick follow-up to yesterday's post -- the Surrey School District (our patron sponsor) is establishing a new registration gateway for us to use this year. They have all the information in place, now, and are working on configuring the new system as I type. (Yes -- at this very moment!)

All this to say that, while SiWC 2008 registration will open (as noted yesterday) on July 17, 2008, we shall have the registration details up well before that. As soon, in fact, as they are available from the hard-working programmers who are setting up the system.

In the meantime, a couple of reminders.

1. Long before the conference sells out (which it has, over the past 3 or 4 years, at least) the Sheraton Guildford gets completely booked. If you are planning to come to the conference, make sure you call the hotel -- tell them you are attending SiWC 2008 in order to get the conference rate -- and book your room as soon as possible. There are several other local hotels that offer special rates to our conference-goers, but nothing beats staying where the action is. You can find the link to the hotel and the direct phone number by looking to the menu on the right side of the main page of our website and clicking on Travel and Accommodations. Or you can follow the link right here: Sheraton Guildford Hotel



2. Have you written your contest entry yet? As I type this, there are a mere 72 days left to the contest deadline. But the clock is ticking ...(yes it is!). Not sure about the details? You can read all about the contest by clicking on the logo in the menu bar on our website, or through the magic of embedded links clicking right here:
