Timing of SARA'2002 and Room Reservations

SARA'2002 sessions will begin at approximately 8:30 a.m. on August 2 and end at approximately 1 p.m. on August 4.

Rooms in SARA's block booking at the Kananaskis Mountain Lodge are reserved for the nights of August 1, 2 and 3 only.
Attendees who wish to arrive before August 1 or depart after August 4 are advised to contact the Kananaskis Mountain Lodge as soon as possible since this is peak tourism season in an area with very limited hotel space.
