The Countdown is ON!



Plans for the 2010 World Guernsey Conference and Tours are well underway! The Canadian Guernsey Association is proud to host the 13th World Conference. We have just put the finishing touches on an all-star list of farm visits that will be featured in the pre and post conference tours. We invite you to join us as we celebrate the 105th Anniversary of the Canadian Guernsey Association. So get ready to be amazed in the 2010!

We hope to have the conference agenda nailed down by June 15th. We are relying on the expertise of Bill Luff to pull together a wealth of knowledge in our speakers. That, combined with the wonderful venue of the Holiday Inn located in the epicenter of the agriculture community, Guelph, Ontario, will ensure you, the delegate, will experience a rich offering to tantalize your mind as well as your body and soul.

Goligerís Travel Plus, Waterloo is coordinating the tours and the registration for the tours and conference. They are currently arranging their website with the tour details and a registration form. You will be able to access this either by going to www.go.travelplus.ca/guernsey/Tabid/5090/default.aspx or hitting the link on the Canadian Guernsey website at www.guernseycanada.ca
