Subject: [Tig-announce] OPTIONS Not Exhibiting at NAB '03

My partner, personally and professionally (Peter Leatherland),
began considering around December '02 whether the considerable
expense OPTIONS' incurs for exhibiting at NAB '03 would be cost
effective for our company this year.  Our reason was brought on
due to the global economic slump that our industry (telecine/post
production) has going through for several months...  along with
the possibility of a war (now a reality), which possibly could
negatively effect the Show's attendance and new product
purchases.   We had not yet made a decision regarding OPTIONS'
exhibiting at NAB 03 when Peter experienced health problems,
which has lead to two major surgeries in the last two months.  As
some of you may know, Peter is an integral part of our technical
set-up for our booth... as well as during the actual Show days.
Thus, his health problems made the decision for us about
exhibiting at NAB '03, which, regretfully... it is just not
feasible for OPTIONS to exhibit this year.

Additionally, Peter's last surgery was only done a few days ago
and the doctor does not yet know when he will be released to
return to work.  I feel that my first responsibility is to stay
close by to Peter... thus, neither of us will be in a position to
even attend NAB '03.   Please note that we have pre-signed as an
exhibitor for NAB '04... anticipating that the world events and
personal health will permit OPTIONS to participate at next year's

As you may know, OPTIONS started the annual NAB Telecine Fun
Night in 1995 and invited various industry peers to assist us in
sponsoring the party as a small token of our appreciation to our
clients for the support throughout the given year.  Although
OPTIONS will not exhibit at NAB '03... we have once again
coordinated the details for the NAB '03 TFN.  However, due to my
absence in Vegas this year, I have ask Rose Tedesco of da Vinci
to fill-in for me as the "on-site hostess" for this year's party.
Rose has also kindly agreed to distribute OPTIONS' Invitations
allotment.  Thus, for those of you that normally have obtained
your party pass from OPTIONS... please see Rose (normally at da
Vinci's Reception Desk) during Show hours, Monday or Tuesday, and
ask her for your Invitation from our allotment.

Since 1985, this is the first time for Peter and I not to
participate as an exhibitor at NAB... including the 13 years that
OPTIONS has been in business.  Words cannot convey how much we
both will miss seeing all of our industry friends.  We hope each
of you has a safe and very successful NAB '03!

Have a great time at the TFN and "have one for us"...
