The North American Helisys Users Group meeting is scheduled for next
week Tuesday thru Thursday at the Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza in
Indianapolis, IN. This is the final agenda for the meeting. Thanks for
everyone's patience in waiting for this information. I didn't realize
how much work it takes to set one of these up. I am sending a packet of
information to every Helisys user in the next day. If you don't get one,
and are interested in attending, please contact me.
