RE: [802SEC] Registration Numbers Update - Eureka !!!
Either you or I should announce the date change at the Opening 802 Plenary,
and WG chairs should also consider announcing at their plenary meeting.

Subject: [802SEC] Registration Numbers Update - Eureka !!!
Colleagues, Well, the final warning messages seems to have done the trick
as we've had nearly 200 registrants come through in just 2 days.
We are now at exactly 750 registered, which oddly enough is exactly where we
were last time (Austin) at the cut-off date. Then we did about 180 people
on site at $300 per and came out just fine. So maybe we're not losing it
after all; it's just our clever attendees having figured out that there's no
advantage to registering ahead of the deadline and waiting until the last
possible minute, so we are pushing the Pre-Reg deadline out to 2 weeks out
because it's way too scary (for me anyway) sitting here at the last minute
wondering if were going to drop 400 attendees and get killed in the process.
