Once completed, please let me know you've signed up and then I'll add you to this event. Here is the **LINK** - make sure to select FEB 23-25, 2018 course.

As of December 26, 2017: There is 1 spot left for the accommodation package ($283.50 including GST) and 3 spots left if you find your own accommodation nearby in Sundre (course is $157.50 including GST, the site is 36km west of Sundre).

I have booked the course WITH accommodation since its a 36km from Sundre to the course. Id prefer to be on site the entire time.

Here is the email I received from them once I paid:
