Carlos Ortiz reports that there is a Megabus service from San Antonio to Dallas that stops close to the TRTA Convention Hotel.  Cost around $30 one way.   Reservations can only be made one or two months in advance.   Go to
www.megabus.com       for more information.


Just a reminder that the District delegates to convention are the president, 1st vice president, 2nd vice president, secretary, and treasurer or their alternates.  So, if these people are in your unit, they can't be a delegate from your unit too.

If you have any questions, please contact me.

I hope to see you on February 6th in Devine.
