Warpstock 98 Finds a Home!

The Warpstock Committee is pleased to announce our new home for Warpstock 98 : Wyndham Northwest Chicago. Warpstock 98 will be held October 17-18, 1998.

Warpstock 98 is alive and well! The Wyndham will add plenty of life to the party, helping to make Warpstock 98 a "Family Friendly" event. The Wyndham offers something for everyone, and has given Warpstock a fantastic room rate at $99 a night.

Wyndham offers all attendees everything they could ever want. Even the Wyndham's Web site, at http://www.wyndham.com, is excellent. It offers a lot more detail about the site than we can fit here, and it's even "net courteous," with low- and high-bandwidth versions of the page. So surf on over to check it out.

After you've checked out the hotel's facilities online, call or fax your reservation, using the WARPSTOCK meeting code. Then pack your bags to head for The Windy City, October 17-18, 1998! Saturday sessions are expected to start bright and early at 8 AM and run late, so staying at the Wyndham will be the most convenient site. Join us Friday night in the Oak Bar Grill* for a getting-to-know you meeting!

Our meeting code is: WARPSTOCK

In 1997, the first annual Warpstock drew OS/2 users from every corner of globe to southern California to see some of the world's best software and hardware offerings running on the world's best and most stable operating system. With its greater visibility, the second time around, Warpstock 98 is expected to outshine even last year's amazing success.
