This is the last week of my daily treks to the PO box. I will be moving my
office to another location about 20 miles from the downtown Raleigh area.
Have not yet decided whether to change PO boxes or just make less frequent
trips to the downtown area. Thus, future posting may not as timely as they
were before the move.
73 and good reading,
Henry Pollock - WB4HFL

Subject: Dayton Stouffers Roomate Needed
Due to a change of plans, my roomate is not going to Dayton.
I would really rather not pay the "discount" Stouffers price solo. Therefore,
I am looking for a roomate or two. I have requested a "low floor" so as not
to have to wait for the elevator (those on 1 and 2 can wander from the
contesting super-suite, pizza eating, contest dinner easily)
This is for Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. May 16,17,18, 1996
Drop me a line if you are interested. If you know someone who
is looking drop me a line too.
