Region III Meeting

March 10 -12, 2006


The wonderful city of Charleston, South Carolina, and the South Carolina 
Society of Histotechnology are playing host to the 2006 Region III 
meeting.  The meeting is being held at the beautiful Charleston Harbor 
Resort & Marina located on Mount Pleasant with a direct view of the harbor 
and Fort Sumter.


Call 843-856-0028 for reservations.  Ask for the special rate of 
$125.00/night for the Region III Histotechnology Meeting. Please note that 
the deadline for reservations has been extended until January 27th.

Registration starts Thursday afternoon, March 9, and in the evening we will 
have a two-hour vendor social with a cash bar and light finger 
foods.  Workshops start early, at 7:30 am on Friday morning.  After a full 
day of learning, it is time to play!  We will board the Palmetto at the 
marina Friday afternoon around 4:30pm. We will cruise through the harbor 
accompanied by beer/wine and light hors d'oeuvre, ultimately arriving at an 
uninhabited island near the Morris Island Lighthouse.  Accompanied by a 
little beach music, we will then indulge in a true Lowcountry experience, 
Frogmore Stew (does NOT contain frogs)!  After this unforgettable beach 
experience, we will time our return with the sun's setting and enjoy the 
breathtaking views of Charleston's sunset-silhouetted steeples.  Saturday 
morning, we resume our excellent line-up of workshops.  Saturday evening is 
on your own. Water taxis leave hourly from the marina to ferry across the 
harbor to Charleston. The USS Yorktown is docked right outside the door, 
and a championship 18-hole golf course is out the other door.  Come join us 
for lots of learning and fun!
