    Meeting Notice: Engineers in Orthopaedics, Marriott San Francisco, 2/11/97

    The annual Engineers in Orthopaedics social meeting will on Tuesday,
    February 11, 1997 from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM in conjunction with the
    Orthopaedic Research Society Meeting in San Francisco. The Engineers in
    Orthopaedics social will be held in the Club Room of the Marriott San
    Francisco Hotel which is adjacent to the Moscone North Convention Center
    and about 2 blocks from the ORS host hotel, the Palace. (Unfortunately
    there were no rooms of sufficient size available in the Palace Hotel, but
    the Marriott is in close walking distance - so please don't let the short
    walk prevent you from joining in on the fun.)

    Last year's meeting was a big success with over 200 attendees and a good
    time was had by all. This year there will again be a complementary hors
    d'oeuvres buffet and complementary wine, beer, softdrinks, coffee, and tea.
    A cash bar will also be available. Last year's special program was very
    well received. In fact, the round of applause that I heard when I
    announced at the meeting that our guest speaker canceled at the last minute
    due to weather related travel problems was simply overwhelming. Therefore,
    this year we will again feature no guest speaker and center only upon a
    time for socializing together. If you are an engineer, wish you were an
    engineer, or merely enjoy socializing with engineers, please come to the
    Engineers in Orthopaedics meeting to relax after a full day of listening to
    talks at the ORS.

    meeting, please call or send a fax or email note to Prof. Robert A. Latour
