Subject: Re: Shmoocon CFP & registration information

Just a reminder, ShmooCon registration rates will be raised to $149 on October 
1.  That's TOMORROW.    We've had a huge number of last minute registrations, 
so we've decided to extend the registration rate of $99 until 10AM EST, Oct 1, 

Get free stuff. Save some cash. If you've submitted a paper, and you end up 
being selected, your registration fee will be returned to you.

For ShmooCon 2005, we have negotiated a discounted group rate at the
Wardman Park Marriott, for Friday and Saturday night of the
conference.  1-800-228-9290 Mention SHMOOCON to get the group discount.

Broke?  Don't worry.  Make a clever advertisement for shmoocon, and get free 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us:
