All events will be held on the campus of
the University of Lethbridge, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
To reach the University: fly to Lethbridge, or fly
to Calgary and drive for 2.5 hours,
taking Highway 2 south to Ft. MacLeod and then Highway
3 east from there, or fly to Great Falls and drive for 3.5 hours,
taking the highway north. Once in Lethbridge proceed to the west
