Dear Rubyists,

We are very pleased to announce that RubyConf 2005 will be held at:

                   Lafayette Hotel & Suites
                   2223 El Cajon Blvd
                   San Diego, CA 92103, USA

                   Phone: (877) 468-3531 (toll-free)
                   Phone: (619) 296-2101
                   Fax: (619) 296-0512

                   http://sandiego.innsuites.com/

We have reserved a block of rooms at the rate of $79.99 (plus
applicable taxes) per night, single or double, for the nights of
October 13, 14, and 15.

When you call, tell them that you are booking a room in the block
reserved for the "International Ruby Conference".  If they're not sure
what you mean, give them the dates of our nights, and they should be
able to look it up.

Pre-registration has been pretty massive compared to previous years.
We've set aside an accordingly large number of rooms, but would still
advise you to make reservations early.

Please let us know if you have any questions or problems with the
reservation process.

Stay tuned for the opening of formal presentation proposal, followed
by registration!
