SNAG exhibition open to all

Hi All, SNAG is holding an exhibition in concert with the 2003 SNAG
conference. Their initial announcement said US only, but after a few
emails the news is good for all. You don’t even have to be a SNAG
member to enter this show, but you will likely have to pay for your
shipping to and from the exhibition. best, Charles
