ISDC 2007 - Featured Speaker Schedule

We are two days into ISDC 2007.
Have you been following the featured speakers?
Ron Wells mentioned that Jack Schmitt will be there, see Sunday schedule.
- LRK -



You might want to post a notice to those attending the ISDC meeting in
Dallas this weekend, which you mentioned in your last newsletter. Jack
Schmitt will be there this Sunday afternoon and evening to receive the
first National Space Society Gerard K. O'Neill Memorial Space Settlement
award for his book "Return to the Moon", where he will also be
participating in a book signing. Members attending may have already been
informed, however, some in the Dallas area may want to attend for the day (if
they can get in on a single-day registration).



The On Line Registration is now closed.
If you happen to be in the area and would still like to attend parts of
the ISDC 2007 conference, here is the registration information.

Wish I was there but going to FT Drum, NY to see Army daughter before
she deploys to IRAQ.

Thanks for looking up with me.
