CRTA Travel in Alberta

Several times during the year CRTA organizes day trips to venues that may be of interest of members. These trips can be for half a day, or full day, depending on its distance from Calgary. The travel involved in these trips is subsidized through casino funds earned by CRTA.

Information about these trips is sent to the CRTA membership via email and through The Newsletter, as well as on the Calendar and Events sections of the Website.’

CRTA welcomes any suggestions for interesting places to visit in Alberta. Contact any member of the CRTA Board with your idea.
