    We would like to invite everyone to ToorCon 2002 this year which is on
    the 27-29th of September. We have just recently released our finalized
    speaker lineup and it looks like it'll be one of ToorCon's best years
    yet. Pre-registration and RSVP will be closing shortly, so register today!
    ToorCon is a comprehensive three day computer security extraveganza
    featuring lectures from some of the top experts in the field, hands-on
    demonstrations of the newest approaches to computer security, and a
    competitive game called RootWars which tests your penetration and
    defensive skills in a real-time simulation. It will be held on
    September 27-29th in Downtown San Diego and starts off with a
    reception the The Bristol Hotel on 1055 First Ave., San Diego, CA
    92101 (right across the street from the Concourse). The Conference
    will take place on Saturday, September 28th and Sunday, September 29th
    in the Grand Ballroom at the Westin Horton Plaza San Diego on 910
    Broadway Circle, San Diego, CA 92101.
    The venue of the talks has changed from the San Diego Concourse to the
    Westin Horton Plaza Hotel. Due to the increased number of attendees,
    the Westin will be able to facilitate growth a lot better. It also has
    a better atmosphere and is closer to San Diego Attractions. The
    reception will still be at the Bristol's Starlight Ballroom like last
    year. Currently all rooms at the Bristol are sold out, most of the
    surrounding hotel have vacancies.

    Pricing goes as follow: $50 for pre-registrations, $60 for RSVP, $75
    at the door. With RSVP your telling us you will be attending but you
    want to pay at the door. This really helps us with the planning. The
    reason for an increase in price is we want to make enough money to
    roll over for the next year. Last year we barely broke even and the
    year before we were $1000 under. Our focus is having the BEST talks
    you can find at real people prices - with out having to file for
    bankruptcy :).
    We will also be accepting discounted ($45) pre-registration at the
    following meetings in September:
    09/05/02 - San Diego BSD User Group Meeting
    09/06/02 - San Diego 2600 Meeting
    09/06/02 - Los Angeles 2600 Meeting
    09/16/02 - San Diego Regional Info Watch Meeting

    This year we are bring back Root Wars. We suggest you bring your
    laptop and join the fun. We will have a wireless network up thanks to
    the guys from BAWUG. Bodoman will be back and he will be bring tons of
    gear down to sell and give away for prizes. There will be new contests
    this year, including raffle giveaways.
