    Please read the attachment first. That went to team members for whom
    I could find a current email address. The email below went out as a
    follow-up and based on those results this email is going to the people
    whose emails I didn’t have but that have been supplied by other team
    members.

    Cheers!

    *************************************************************************************

    We have gotten generally enthuiastic reaction (email see attachment) to the announcement of a 2016 IMO Sendoff/Reunion. Some people have said it is a good idea even as they are not able to attend. Unfortunately, and unavoidably, the Reunion/Sendoff conflicts with the 2016 CMS Summer Meeting in Edmonton, Alberta.

    I want to get some sense of how many former IMO Team members think they might attend the Sendoff/Reception at York University on Sunday, June 26. (The time is not yet set). If you are “thinking of” or “considering” attending the reception, please REPLY to this email.

    We have reserved a small block of rooms for June 26 in a Holliday Inn a short distance from the event venue. The room rate is $110 CND/night plus taxes. We will try to identify roommates among the group for those who would be interested in sharing a room. Please indicate if you would be interested in sharing a room at the Sendoff/Reception.

    There is now a Facebook.com page (search Canadian Mathematical Society).

    The website for the Reunion now exists (but is not yet public). We are accepting material, mostly in the form of e-mail messages, on a rolling basis. We already have some messages of congratulations and some with recent activities updates. We plan to roll out the website on May 1.

    We are seeking additional sponsors for the 2016 Canadian IMO team. If you think that your employer might be interested in being a sponsor, please let me know.

    If you are in a position of being able to donate (or know anyone else who would) AirCanada frequent flyer miles, please sign on to the Air Canada account and donate the miles to the Canadian Mathematical Society.

    Thanks in advance,
