This is a general email going out to our group and I have included the Hawaiians in this email as some of the information pertains to them. Hawaiians are not on the same flight schedule as the group from Canada and therefore I will not look into
their Hong kong hotels or buses/ also I will not look into the Hawaiian hotel arrangements for the night of August 25th and on and transportation back to Hong Kong as I think again their flights and itinerary are different (staying longer..or whatever)
I believe Jean Marie has a very good handle on things. If any of the Canadians or San Diego people do NOT want me looking into any of the items below for them, please let me know now. It is too hard to keep track of everyones arrival and
departures. ( I know Melanie you are going to stay in China for some time after ..)
 See Sue or write to Sue if you are not clear on things and she will try to get answer for you asap. Please make sure to read your emails. I cannot worry about you all not reading your emails. Very important to do this and regularly. As you all know that at times it is hard to de-cypher all the information. I have tried to summarize the latest information below. Please make sure to read on when instalments are due, etc.
