I received some calls indicating that the hotel for November in Palm
Springs was sold out. I checked with the hotel and discovered that the
block at $105 was sold out, but that there still were rooms available.
The hotel has now released a new block of rooms at the $105 rate, so if
you tried to make a reservation before and were unsuccessful, you can
try again now. Thanks for your patience!
Hint: This means you should ACT NOW!-)
I am attaching the full original notice again in case anyone missed it.

November 7-11, 1994 Plenary Meeting Announcement
Western Digital Corporation is pleased to be able to host the November
plenary meeting of X3T10. Without further ado, the key details:
Hyatt Regency Suites Palm Springs
285 North Palm Canyon Drive
Palm Springs, CA 92262
619-322-9000 or 800-233-1234
Group Name: Western Digital
Room Rate: $105/night, includes tax and parking
Cut Off Date: October 17, 1994
I want to emphasize that this time of year is the start of THE SEASON
in Palm Springs. We have negotiated a very good room rate with a four
star hotel. If you miss the cutoff date, you can expect to pay
$150-$200 per night for a room or more, if you can find one at all! I
cannot stress more how important it is for you to make your
reservations by the cutoff date. After that date, rooms are on a space
available basis. You don't want to do that!
Some additional background may be in order. The Hyatt is located in the
Palm Springs Village area. It is within walking distance of many shops
and restaurants. There may perhaps be some of you who golf. If so, let
the hotel know when you check in. They can set up tee times for you
at Rancho Mirage Country Club, with special discount green fees.
Palm Springs is well served with jet service to Palm Springs airport.
Several airlines fly in there. To get to the hotel from Palm Springs
Airport, you call the hotel for a complementary shuttle (it's only
three miles). To drive from the airport, exit the rental car lot by
turning left on El Cielo Rd. At the stop sign turn right on Tahquitz.
Go a few blocks and turn right on Indian Ave. This is a four lane, one
way road and you need to get immediately over to the left. Turn left
on Amado, and another left onto North Palm Canyon Drive. Hyatt Regency
Suites is on the right at the corner of North Palm Canyon Drive and
Amado Road. There is an entrance to an underground parking garage.
You may also fly into Ontario airport if you prefer, though the drive
is about 90 minutes from there. It is a scenic drive in a desert-y
sort of way. From Ontario airport go north on Vinyard to I-10. Head
east a long time on I-10 to state highway 111. Remain on highway 111
for about 11 miles (it will become North Palm Canyon Drive). Proceed as
You lucky few travelling from Orange County can hop state highway 91
and take it all the way out to state highway 60. Stay on 60 until it
merges with I-10, proceeding as described above. But you knew that.
Needless to say, if you have any problem making a reservation, please
contact me. I will beat up the appropriate people!
(Note: If I missed any reflectors, please let me know somebody!)
