|2012 Canadian Team Cross-country Soaring Seminar|
The Canadian Team and Canadian Advanced Soaring are happy to announce that the 2012 Soaring Seminar will be held in Montreal on Sat 31 March.
The Canadian Team and Advanced Soaring Seminar is scheduled for Sat 31 March 2012 at the CBC/ radio-canada located at 1400 Rene-Levesque Boulevard East, Montreal.
The cost for the day is $40 (please bring exact change - cash is preferred) and all proceeds go to the Canadian Team which will be competing at the World Gliding Championships in Uvalde, Texas. All four team members will be at the seminar to share their knowledge and experience with the audience.
There is no meal this year since the CBC building does not have a restaurant, but there are many lunch options within walking distance. An hour and a half has been allowed for lunch to give everyone enough time to find a nice bistro.
RSVP's are required as the security services in the CBC building need a list of names before we arrive.
Please RSVP to dave "at" foxonecorp "dot" com before Wed 28 March. Please don't wait until the last minute!
