Annual Meeting and Symposium-- airline fare wars announced today

The airlines are having a new round of fare wars for travel through mid
October. If you were thinking of coming to this year's Space Symposium in
Arlington, VA, it might be a good time to book your ticket before the
desirable flights are sold out. 

When booking your flight, please keep in mind:

The Amsat Board of Directors meeting will be on Thursday October 7 beginning
at 8am. All Amsat members are welcome to attend.

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) meeting will be
held October 11-13, after the conclusion of the Symposium, all Amsat members
are invited to sit in on the meeting sessions.

Washington DC has many new cultural attractions that have opened in the past
few years, if you have not been here lately you might want to schedule some
time to get out and see the city. Some items of interest to "nerds" can be
found at: http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/symposium/N8FGVNerdsTour.php

For a guide to Washington's three airports, please see
Remember to check fares to all three Washington area airports, DCA, IAD
and BWI, prices can vary significantly between the three airports.

If you are going on the Sunday afternoon bus trip to the new Air and Space
Museum at Dulles airport, the bus will return to the hotel at 5pm. If you are
booking a Sunday evening flight please allow time to get to the airport after
that time. The bus WILL NOT be stopping at Dulles airport on the way back from
the museum.
