VACE 2004, June 23rd-25th, Greenbelt Marriott.

All of you are aware that we have experienced contractual 'challenges' that forced the postponment of the 6-month workshop to June. With the help of the University of Maryland, we were able to reschedule and relocate this workshop. This is the same location where the Final Phase 1 VACE Workshop was held.


The VACE workshop include all breakfasts, lunches and breaks for 3 days. There is a workshop dinner on the first night that you should register separatly on the registration form. The cost for the 3 days registration is $375, with an additional $35 for the dinner at the 94th Aerosquadron.

NOTE: There is also a home Orioles game against the Yankees on Thursday night, so we may organize an informal trip there as well. (Cancelled due to a lack of initial interest) - Individuals can obtain tickets at
