Alberta members from the GAA clubs of Fort McMurray, Edmonton, Calgary and Red Deer/Lethbridge, along with Vancouver B.C.'s GAA club members, gathered in Edmonton's Irish Sports and Social Clubhouse on the last Sunday of April for a Referee's Seminar. 

Séamas Ó hAnluain had been appointed by Ulster Provincial Council to deliver two referees training seminars on Saturday, April 28th in Toronto and in Edmonton on Sunday, April 29. The Canadian County Board and all those in attendance were appreciative of the great distances that Seamus O'Hanlon had travelled in a very short period. Seamus is also the Secretary of the Kilcoo GAA club near to Newry in County Down.

There was one delegate from the Fort McMurray Shamrocks, two from the Calgary Chieftains, four from the Vancouver ISSC, eight from Lethbridge/Red Deer Eire Og's and 10 from the Edmonton Wolfe Tones. Congratulations to all of the Western Canadian clubs who ensured that the course would be a success.
