    ** Note: This meeting is NOT at our regular meeting location **
    ** Note: Meeting Schedule is a bit different (earlier), to work
             with the OpenSolaris Group.

    ** We will need you to do a DOUBLE RSVP for this meeting.
    ** The OpenSolaris RSVP is the one which will get you into the
       building, and that RSVP bypasses Unigroup and goes directly
       to Sun.

    There are three Solaris related events happening this week.
    Unigroup's November 2008 Solaris 10 Release meeting (and Joint
    Meeting with the NYC OpenSolaris User Group) is happening
    Thursday evening at Sun's NYC office.

    Independently, Sun is hosting two all-day Quarterly Solaris User
    Group Events on Tuesday and Wednesday, in their NY and NJ offices.
    See below for further information.

    ** Unigroup Board of Director Elections: Unigroup will be holding
    our annual elections for our Board of Directors shortly.  If you
    are interested in running/volunteering for the Unigroup Board,
    please contact us immediately!



    We need you to perform a DOUBLE registration for the November
    Unigroup meeting - Thanks...

    ** To gain access to Sun Microsystems, please RSVP via the NYC
       OpenSolaris User Group Meeting Page.  Any information entered
       on that page goes directly to Sun (and Building Security) and
       bypasses Unigroup:

    ** Then also, for Unigroup, please use our normal RSVP page...

    To REGISTER for this event, please RSVP by using the Unigroup
    Registration Page:

    This will allow us to automate the registration process.
    (Registration will also add you to our mailing list.)
    Please avoid emailed RSVPs.

    Please continue to check the Unigroup web site and meeting page,
    for any last minute updates concerning this meeting.  If you
    registered for this meeting, please check your email for any last
    minute announcements as the meeting approaches.  Also make sure
    any anti-spam white-lists are updated to _ALLOW_ Unigroup traffic!
    If you block Unigroup Emails, your address will be dropped from
    our mailing list.

    Please RSVP as soon as possible, preferably at least 2-3 days
    prior to the meeting date, so we can plan the food order.
    RSVP deadline is usually the night before the meeting day.

    Note: RSVP is mandatory for this location to make sure the guard
          will let you into the building.  RSVP also helps us to
          properly plan the meeting (food, drinks, handouts,
          seating, etc.) and speed up your sign-in at the meeting.
