XC I+II Refresher & XC I Prep course @HorseshoeWe are please to announce that the XC courses for this coming winter are now open for registration. Thank you for your patience. We had to ensure we will have enough Course Conductors now that Steve Gentles, Paul Graner and Mike Lalonde are no longer available.

This winter, thanks to Wendy Grater, Peter Grey, Paul Jorgensen (who just moved back from BC), Clare Magee, Rob Henderson, and our trainees Ted Williams, Murray Wood and Jan Vopalensky, we are able to offer you in total 17 XC courses over 8 events and 5 locations.

Note also that this winter not only are we keeping current course prices same as last year, but we also offering four Refresher/Professional Development courses for free. But if you still feel our courses are costly, keep in mind we are again offering Youth Scholarships to qualified individuals.

The CANSI member website will be undergoing scheduled maintenance this weekend - the site will be unavailable Friday October 9, 2009 starting at 9:00 p.m. EDT until 1:00 a.m. EDT Saturday October 10 (4 hours).

During this time, the site will be unavailable. Users may not be able to connect to the site or may receive errors attempting to connect to the site during this period.

At 9:00 p.m. EDT on Friday October 9, we will update the DNS records for the site. It may take up 24 hours for the DNS changes to propagate to the entire Internet, and until this happens, the cansi.ca site may not respond properly.

Thank you for your patience.
