Convention 2014 - Membership - Snow Shoe/Walk Event

CBIH Members,

The Canadian Volkssport Federation's National Convention and Annual General Meeting will take place from 30 May - 1 June 2014  in Banff Alberta.

With so many Cape Breton families now located in Alberta perhaps you may consider a mini vacation to see family or friends and then take in the convention at the same time.

You can register online in just a few minutes simply follow the links from our national website:

Our national convention are a great way to meet Volkssporters from across the country, USA and around the world.

Ann and I have just registered and felt the prices were very reasonable compared to other location where the convention has been held in the past.

Note below from Kathy Parr, Convention Vice Chair,

Hi All,
Just wanted to let you know that we are receiving great response for the Banff Convention. We have 24 registered for the convention and 32 rooms booked. 
Due to this wonderful response we have increased our allotted rooms to 125 but that is all we can get, at this time, due to limited availability during the time of our convention. We have 85 rooms at the Banff Park Lodge and 40 rooms at the nearby Bow Valley Lodge. Please pass this information on to your members who are planning on attending. The information on how to make a reservation is on the Accommodations tab on the Convention website
Kathy Parr,
Convention Vice Chair
