[amsat-bb] IMPORTANT notice for 2016 AMSAT Space Symposium Attendees

News that came out this morning.... about 45 minutes ago.
As they cancelled this week's cruise after everyone had boarded, my
guess is that a week to make the repairs necessary should put us back on
schedule for a normal departure (the boat is not coming in from anywhere
to be late). Also, if they were planning on us going out with a slowed
down vessel and then make final repairs when it gets back to port,
everything should be just fine with the vessel not moving and being
repaired over a 7 day period.
On a good note, this only affected the speed of the vessel and not any
of the other functions, such as A/C, electricity, water and sewage. All
things that are really worse than a slow moving boat.
We will try to keep everyone informed over the next few days about any
news on the cruise.
