CALA thank you
"Thank you for a Fabulous CALA Conference experience in Canmore, AB October 14th & 15th!
I didn't realize until I was at the 30th CALA celebration that I actually was in the initial CALA classes taught in North Vancouver. My instructor was very conscientious and taught us according to form. All learned from the book, Foundations of Vertical Water Training, I eventually got to study first hand and now know why she was able to teach the way she did. I am so glad to have CALA in my life! I wish I could remember my instructor's name. I sure can remember her character and positive influence in my life. I bet you'd know her. Sunny complexion. Tawny hair. She often wore a baseball cap teaching 30 years ago.
Thanks for the weekend and all the rest that added up to it!"
