There was some confusion about the day of the FC Hub Profile meeting
(Tuesday evening) and about how long the FCW meeting runs on Monday.  The
latest meeting map (and hotel information) for the May T10 week are as

CUT-OFF DATE:  April 14, 1997

DRIVING DIRECTIONS: (From Boston's Logan Airport)

As you exit from Logan Airport, you want to turn left (South on 
1A) and go through the Sumner Tunnel ($1 toll).

Note: Do not attempt to use the Ted Williams tunnel, which is 
only open to commercial traffic.

If traffic is light, the electric sign will direct you to turn 
left (South on 1A) directly towards the Sumner Tunnel. If traffic 
is heavy, the electric sign and state police will require you to 
take the "alternate route", that is, turn right, North on 1A, 
away from the tunnel. Get off at the first exit and keep to the 
left down the exit ramp. At the bottom of the ramp make a U-turn 
and get back on 1A, heading South and towards the tunnel. Try to 
develop a sense of patience.

You should be in the left lane going into and through the Sumner 
tunnel. Upon exiting the Sumner Tunnel, turn sharp right onto a 
surface street; do not turn broad right and go up the highway 
entrance ramp (which leads to I-93 north). There are signs 
marking these turns but you won't have time to both read them and 
cope with the traffic. After the sharp right onto a surface 
street, drive perhaps 100 yards, staying in the left lane, then 
make a U-turn under the highway and continue up the entrance ramp 
onto Rt. 3 South. Follow signs to the Mass Turnpike West. The 
exit for the Mass Turnpike is on the right at the end of the 
South Station Tunnel (a different tunnel from before). The signs 
don't give much advance warning of the exit.

Take the Mass Pike west to exit 13 (Route 30, Framingham/Natick). 
After the toll booth, bear right and at the second light take a 
left at the Shopper's World entrance. Follow the road to the end, 
then take a left at the traffic light onto Rt 9 Eastbound. The 
Crowne Plaza will be 50 yards on the right, past Dunkin' Donuts.
