All -

I'm happy to report that the web site for NARAM-46 is now open!

The url is www.naram.org.

Charlie Sykos is performing an admirable job as our webmaster. Having
broadband in Kealakua, Hawaii helps.

The web site's not static - we'll be adding content in the coming weeks (an
application would be nice). What I do want people to do is to start thinking
about their vacation (is NARAM a vacation?) plans for 2004 and consider
booking your room at the host hotel. Washington, DC is one of the top
vacation destinations in the country especially for families. Most of the
museums here have no admission fees (read: f-r-e-e) thanks to Ma and Pa
Taxpayer. Getting into and around the city via public transit (read: Metro
Rail) is fairly easy and safe. The Vienna/Fairfax-GMU Station is less then
20 minutes from the hotel. Most of the Smithsonian museums, Capital,
Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial are all located on the Mall. We've
added an attractions page to the web site to help one navigate all there is
to do in the DC metro area. Yes ***ia, there will be a rocket meet next
year in The Plains, however I've spend many a NARAM at sites where I'm glad
my family was not joining me for the 'fun'.

Once again - www.naram.org.

I look forward to hearing from one and all.

Would you know offhand if the motel is "pet friendly". Or if not have an
alternate place in the area that is. I can't remember if we took our dog
with last time or not, and things change in 15 years. In fact, I don't
remember anything at all of the hotel. But I DO still remember the Muncie
and Henrietta Ramadas...

BTW, will this be the second NARAM of the 19th century?

Bob -
I'm sorry but no pets are permitted at the Holiday Inn.  Check out the
bottom of http://www.holidayinnmanassas.com/.
There are other hotels in Manassas or in Warrenton who may be pet friendly.
Yes, if the patch maker gets in wrong this might be the 1804 NARAM.  For
those of you who did not witness this, the patch manufacturer stiched 1889
on the NARAM-31 patch. Trip had a new set of patches with the right date
distributed before the end of NARAM, so everyone has two NAMAM patches.

Interesting. The Holiday-inn.com web site says otherwise. I guess I'll have
to deal with the one that says "yes"!

Or maybe 1904? Still, it made for a "unique" NARAM patch...

Try holiday-inn.com, and search for Manassas VA. That page says otherwise!
I've seen it before where all you had to do was to turn a NO into an OK was
talk to the manager. Usually the fact that the dog is crate trained is all
it takes to assure them that the room won't be chewed up and peed all over.

I'll consider that...

It's available in one of the NARTS Tech reports. I'll also see what I can do
to get the text online.

Bob -

Obviously what we have here is a failure to communicate. The corporate
Holiday Inn web site says pets allowed while the hotel's own web site says
no pets.

Sounds like a coin toss.

up internet access and they also have a T1 in the business center which
is free for registered hotel users......
