Dear CASA Member,

Happy Holiday.

The Chinese American Society of Anesthesiology (CASA) will hold the 2008 annual meeting at the Great Wolf Lodge in Pocono, PA, with the winter retreat. All the CASA members are invited.

As everyone know, in our daily practice, more and more regional anesthesia is required at ambulatory surgery center and also in hospital setting. So the CASA will arrange a miniworkshop for Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia, in addition to the other academic lectures.

The Great Wold Lodge in Pocono is a wonderful family winter retreat resort. Everybody went there before wants to go back again. The biggest in-door water park at the northeastern region is fabulous, not only for kids and also for adults. The spacious game room, nice decorated restaurant and friendly atmosphere are very impressive. The resort is near Camelback skiing resort and premier outlet shopping center. The Great Wolf Lodge is a fun-filled unique resort. In the park, you can slide down the 626 feet Bear Taillanding tubes, twist inside and outside the building and drop into a plug pool. In addition, there are three kiddie slides, 10 feet family flume water slides, a Laze river, two large hot tubs, an activity pool with water basketball, a wave pool with 111,000 gallons of water gives you a river-rafting experience.
