Get ready to set sail for the 2016 AMSAT Space Symposium and Annual
Meeting – at sea!  With only a few months between now and our sailing
date of November 10, cabins are starting to fill up quickly.  If you
have not made reservations, please consider doing so to ensure your
cabin preference may be accommodated.  While our AMSAT group
reservation has a negotiated rate for category 4B inside cabins, many
group members have opted to reserve ocean view and balcony cabins.


-          Booking your Carnival Cruise does not register you for the
AMSAT Symposium.  There is a charge for each Symposium attendee of
$40.  This fee applies to those who will attend the technical
presentations only and includes a copy of the printed Proceedings.
Additional guests are entitled to attend all other events. The
registration form is available from the AMSAT office or store website.

-          The AMSAT 2016 Space Symposium Cruise flyer included in the
2016 Board of Directors ballot mailing lists an incorrect group
booking code.  The correct AMSAT group code is 8Z0RF5.

-          Ground transportation options have been added to the FAQ
page on the AMSAT Symposium web page.  Carnival offers round-trip
transportation from HOU airport to the cruise terminal at
approximately $74 per person, IAH airport $94 per person.
