      >Dear Friends,
      >
      >Every time I attend a low vision conference or exposition, I wish I
      >could somehow take all of you with me. There is no better way to learn
      >and to meet people with interests common to ours. To attend one of
      >those events, however, is expensive, and transportation is often
      >difficult to arrange.
      >
      >Finally, here is one we can all attend together, and we can do it
      >through our computers. After learning about it during this past week
      >(thanks to one of my organization's professional advisors, Dr. Lylas
      >Mogk), I have become so enthused that MD Support has now become one of
      >the sponsors, exhibitors, and presenters. I hope you will keep reading
      >this message and plan to meet us there. Remember, none of us will have
      >to leave our homes or spend any money, but we will still be able to
      >attend exhibits and presentations just like the real thing (and there
      >will even be a live concert by Pat Boone, which may be more interesting
      >to us elderly MD people than you youngsters on RPList <smile>).
