Agenda: View CSM Workshop
Breckenridge is a quaint, Victorian town in the Colorado
mountains that has become an extremely popular ski resort destination.
Founded as a mining camp in 1859, Breckenridge sits at 9600 feet at
the base of the Continental Divide and along the Blue River. The
weather in June could be around 70 degrees, but temperatures in the
evening are cool and often call for a sweater or jacket. There may
also be occasional brief showers in the afternoons.
The workshop is open, but space is limited. Therefore, anyone
interested in attending the workshop must send in a
registration form by Friday, 30 April 1999.
Registration forms can also be mailed or faxed if necessary. All
participants MUST register, although registration may not guarantee
attendance depending on availability of space. Limited travel funds
may be available, and the registration form should indicate details of
financial requirements needed and previous CSM project participation.
