Well, since this seems to be mostly for online announcements, Latitude
and longitude coordinates could be added to the message, with a link
for MapQuest:



puts you within spitting distance of the Participant's gate at

Easy enough for someone with a GPS to find the coordinates, or someone
stubborn can pry them out of MapQuest (only took me about 30 minutes
<G> over a modem, should only take 5 with a DSL)
