Further to: Jack Pine Budworm Symposium - January 1995

This is the information promised for November:


                  Jack Pine Budworm Symposium 

                     January 23-26, 1995   
                       The Westin Hotel
                       Two Lombard Place
                   Winnipeg, Manitoba.Canada

Why? Nine years ago a symposium on jack pine budworm biology and
management was held in Winnipeg. The resulting publication listed
several key issues that should  be addressed to improve management of
this pest.  How far have we come?  At a meeting in Sault Ste. Marie last
year there was consensus that there should be another symposium to
assess progress, discuss new developments and update the list
developed in 1986.  The symposium is now largely organized with
several key speakers committed to making presentations, some
moderating workshops, and others presenting information in the more
informal workshops.   There is ample room on the program for workshop
presentations so that all with an interest in the jack pine budworm
management will have an opportunity to voice their views.   This is an
invitation to attend the meeting and participate.  The program as it now
stands is included in this package.

Where? Yes Winnipeg in January! Although it can be cold we have
tried to compensate for this with meeting facilities at the prestigious
Westin Hotel in Winnipeg at a great price.  Many restaurants and
businesses in the city core are connected to the Westin by
environmentally controlled walkways. The hardy can  enjoy cross
country skiing on the historic waterways which  run close to the Westin. 
The Forks, an award winning project which houses several unique
restaurants, markets, shops and museums, is a short walk from the
Westin. 

When? Registration and ice breaker:  Monday, January 23, 1995,  7:30
pm. On the  two days following the program runs from 8:30 am to 5:00
pm with breaks for a catered lunch and coffee/juice both mornings and
