Saturday Night Event


A new tradition is born! In 2006, celebrating the 20th year of the conference, the CCSC:SE conference featured for the first time a special Saturday night event for all interested conference attendees -- an evening at the famous Bluebird Cafe. In 2007, the Saturday night event was a golf outing in Myrtle Beach. See the details below for Augusta in 2008!

Special Saturday Event for 2008:
Augusta Canal Tour

This year's Saturday Night Event is a tour of the Augusta Canal. Folks can also hike, bike, or canoe or kayak the canal.

Explore the nation's only industrial power canal still in use for its original purpose. Built in 1845 to harness the water and power of the Savannah River, the Augusta Canal offers history, recreation and unique experiences along its 8.5 miles of towpath and waterway.

Enjoy the Augusta Canal on foot, by bicycle, canoe or kayak. Fish from the banks, watch for wildlife or relax on a guided tour aboard a replica canal cargo boat.

Encounter the people who built the canal and learn about the progress, problems and promise of its century-and-a-half history at the Augusta Canal Interpretive Center at Enterprise Mill.
