Calgary Birds Convention
Thursday, June 7th through to Sunday, June 10th, 2018.

The Convention will be held at the Sandman Hotel, Calgary City Centre, 888, 7th Ave. SW, Calgary, AB T2P 3J3, 1-403-237-8626.
We have blocked 30 Standard King rooms for the three nights, June 7th through to the 9th. The room rate is tentatively set at Canadian $129.00, which isequivalent (today) to approximately $100.00 U.S. dollars. If anyone would prefer a room with other than a King bed (double beds or Queen), that can be arranged when booking.
The rate includes: Hispeed internet, heated pool/whirlpool, access to the fitness facility as well as coffee and tea in every room. Underground parking is available, and is very reasonable for the Friday and Saturday nights.
There are two restaurants on site within the hotel, and many others within easy walking distance of the hotel.
The hotel is situated on the main C-train transit line which runs through the heart of the city, and that transport is free to all within the downtown core.The hotel is also connected to an aboveground inside pathway system which can be used to access virtually every major building within the downtown core should the weather be inclement enough to prevent walking outside. It is also located just a few blocks from the Bow River and the extensive pathway systems (both bicycle and pedestrian) that extend from the downtown core for 10-15 miles in either direction and on both sides of the river. In short, we believe we have selected an excellent venue at a reasonable price for the convention, one that should meet the needs of everyone who attends.
The Hotel has agreed to waive their normal block booking restrictions, and will allow booking access to the block of rooms until May 24th. There will be no cancellation charges for a booking, as long as the room is cancelled prior to June 6th.
They have a web site if anyone wishes to discover more about the hotel, and reservations of the blocked rooms are probably best made for the time being by phone at 1-403-237-8626. I will update that info if I can confirm from the hotel that the block of rooms will beaccessiblethrough their email
