AN UPDATE FROM THE SUMMER EVENTS COMMITTEE REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS

The Summer Events Committee is monitoring the Covid-19 situation and keeping apprised of guidelines issued by the Province of Alberta regarding events and gatherings. At present we are planning to go ahead, but the situation is very fluid. However, please know if TAC or Mount Royal University cancels the event at any point, you will receive a full refund. 

If you choose to cancel on or before July 2 you will receive a full refund less a $50 CDN administrative fee. Cancellations after July 2 will incur a $150 CDN administrative fee. We would prefer not to charge the administrative fee, but our transaction costs to date are in excess of $3000.

We are also eliminating the 10% fee increase after the “early bird” deadline.  Prices, as posted on the fee schedule and application forms, will be honored throughout registration.

 
The 2020 events will be held at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Alberta, Canada
 
Friday, July 24 - Sunday, July 26, 2020

 TCW Teacher will be Ron Wallace from California

TCW Musicians will be Judi Nicolson, Ian Muir, Kathy Fraser Collins, and Fred Collins
