Dear OS/2 User,
Right now most of us are in the summer doldrums. Sitting back in
the sun, We're sitting back in the sun...taking it easy with a tall cool one, while
surfing on our laptops with the beta of Netscape Communicator 4.04.
The Warpstock Team is tempted by summer's pleasures too, but we're
sweating out the details of Warpstock'98. We're busy planning the site layout, contacting
speakers, working out the network connections, and in general trying to make this
year even bigger and better than last year's event. To make that happen, we need
As a very active member in the OS/2 community, we know that you're
anxious to meet other users. You correspond with them online, you see them in your
favorite virtual hangouts. This is a perfect time to remind them that, aside from
the topnotch presentations you'll see and the OS/2 exhibits you'll be able to visit...
you can actually see your friends, people who don't stare at you strangely when
you say "OS/2."
This is our party, our chance to get together. Communicate that
to the other OS/2 users you know, and encourage them to join in. Remember, the whole
purpose of this event is a celebration of OS/2... and the more, the merrier.
Make your reservations now!
September 16th is just around the corner. That's exactly one month
before Warpstock. On that day, the Wyndham Northwest will no longer accept Warpstock
group rates. The cost of putting on Warpstock is directly based on the number of
people who choose to stay in the Wyndham. We need 100 attendees to stay each night
of Warpstock at the Wyndham to reduce our costs to the bare minimum.
We have arranged a bare minimum of a price to help you do just
that, $99 a night for a AAA 4 Diamond hotel. This is an absolute bargain! You have
to see what you're getting for your money. The hotel is outrageous. But this bargain
can only be yours if you use the "WARPSTOCK" group code when you make
your reservations. Call the Wyndham Northwest at (630) 773-4000 Fax: (630) 773-4087.
They accept all major credit cards. They also have a web site to check out all the
amenities and get directions - http://www.wyndham.com
Your can purchase your Warpstock 98 tickets and see all the latest
event information from the official Warpstock web site at http://www.warpstock.org.

Remember that Warpstock is a non-profit event in more than just
the legal terms of the word. If you want to continue to see this type of event (BY
OS/2 users, and FOR OS/2 users), then you have to make the pilgrimage to Chicago.
But before you can begin your adventure, you need a reservation. Please, take a
moment and make your lodging arrangements now, and ask everyone you know that they
do the same.
Thank you for a moment of your summer, see you in the Fall.
