Dear CBAers,

I attach an announcement from Peter Williams about a bright outburst
("super") in V803 Cen.  We've observed such things before, and gotten
quite excellent data... but the seasonal timing is excellent, and over the
next few weeks it seems likely we'll have three-continent coverage.
Namely, Berto in S Africa, the usual suspects in NZ/AU, and Paul Warhurst
in Argentina (who will be there on a long trip).  This is too tempting to
pass up.  V393 Hya is showing a period which seems very stable - so I
think we can leave it for a couple months.  So let's REPLACE V393 Hya with
V803 Cen as the prime southern object.

SDSS1637-00 is still very good too. That has the added merit of permitting
North American coverage.
