SEC Rules Change Ballot--meeting tonight Sun 3/5 7-9PM in Albuquerque Hyatt

Dear SEC,

The results of the Nov. 99 rules change ballot (so far) are 2APP, 8DIS,
3DNV(effectively DIS).  Ballot FAILS.  

I will attend the meeting.  I've delayed my flight to Albuquerque this
afternoon (so I can watch my #1 son's play in a high school championship
basketball game at 1PM).  Bill Lidinsky has agreed to chair the meeting in
my absence (thanks Bill). 

Jim Carlo - 		DIS
Paul Nikolich -	DIS
Howard Frazier -		DNV
Bob Grow -		APP
Buzz Rigsbee -	DIS
Bill Lidinsky -	APP
Geoff Thompson -	DIS
Bob Love -		DIS
Chip Benson -			DNV
Vic Hayes -		DIS
Robert Russell -	DIS
Bob Heile -		DIS
Roger Marks -		DIS

For those that 'voted' by sending comments in without EXPLICITLY casting a
vote (APP, DIS, ABS), I assumed the ballot was a DIS.  If this is
incorrect, please send a note to have correct the ballot recorded.

For those that DNV (did not vote), remember under the rules change rules,
not voting equals abstain equals DISAPPROVE.

I'll be getting into Albquerque around 11PM tonight--see you then,
