CANWARN update

Folks, just an update on this spring's CANWARN training sessions. The season got off to a strong start with good attendance at both the Sarnia and London training sessions run by Randy Mawson earlier this week. A few things to note, there is a slight correction to the address for the April 30th session at the Rama Community Hall, the correct address is 5950 Rama Road. Also, the date for the Ottawa training at the Nepean Sailing Club has been moved from Saturday, May 7th to Saturday, May 14th due to a scheduling conflict. I did receive a good response for holding a Toronto evening training session, so a training session will be held at our headquarters at 4905 Dufferin St. starting at 7 PM on Wednesday, May 18th. In addition, the dates/venues of the training in portions of Northeastern and Northwestern Ontario have been firmed up and are included below.

Thanks to those of you who have already come out to a training session and to those that have RSVP'd me for one of the other sessions. If you haven't already let me know which session you intend to come to, please feel free to drop me a note in the coming days. Also, if you have had a change of contact information (email, phone, address), please feel free to drop me a note with the new information and I will ensure to update our database.
