You could try sharing a room with someone else. It is kind of isolated unless you have a car. The nearest hotel would be about 1/2 mile away. Besides, I've had to stay at an alternate hotel before and lost the cammeraderie of the gang. The ACA has an area where you can sign up for room sharing.

The Renaissance Waverly is located near Interstates 485 and 75. I believe there are a lot of hotel choices in that area.

It will be good to see you again.

Does anyone know if there are ACA conferences in Canada?

Regretably, ACA does not have a conference in Canada. :ohmy:

Hi Mary,

I live in Canada, Saskatoon, and there is a development of the CCA (Canadian Coalition of Amputees) being formed out of Montreal, Natalie Fish and group. I took their Training the Trainer for Peer Visitation in January. The group from Montreal is hoping to have a conference in the near future. I belong to another group for work and it holds a North American conference with a Canadian group as part of the overall group, but we sure have our own personality which is very evident. Personally, I would like to see the Canadian group do this and have some programming at ACA.

Peace

Beth Marie

This is not that great of a picture, but it was all that I had. Here is Higgy/Tammie saddled up at the 'McKeevers First Ride' event. This was an wonderful event for me to attend.
