In the past issue of American Canals, we announced a
joint field trip / conference with the Canal Society of New York State and the
Canadian Canal Society in
We had planned to hold the annual ACS Directors’ meeting as part of this weekend. Instead, it will be held after dinner on April 14th at the Canal Society of Indiana spring tour.
This is the second time in the last few years that we have tried to put together an event on the ACS level that would bring together canal enthusiasts from an area larger than one state to network and discuss canals. Many have felt the need to have something smaller, more local, and more affordable than the World Canals Conference. But, we have not come up with a workable format.
In light of this, I urge you to attend the events of your state canal society and those of a neighboring state society and those more local. ACS will continue to publish items and ideas on a larger geographic range and our web site will continue to work to be the best source of canal information on the internet. I continue to solicit any other ideas you may have.
