Clan Douglas Society of North America

Annual General Meeting 2013

The Clan Douglas Society of North America is happy to announce the upcoming 2013 Annual General Meeting to be held September 5th – 8th 2013 at the Longs Peak Scottish Highland Festival in Estes Park, Colorado. 

Our AGM host hotel will be the Rocky Mountain Park Inn located within 3 blocks of the Park entrance where the games will be held and the hotel offers a free shuttle service to Clan members who want to attend the games.  Please make your reservations and tell them you are with Clan Douglas before August 1st, 2013. You may contact the hotel directly at 800-803-783 or 970-586-2332.  You can also view the hotel accommodations and directions at www.rockymountainparkinn.com

Rocky Mountain Park Inn is offering rooms at $ 119.00 per night on Sept 5th Thursday and Sept. 8th Sunday, room rates on Sept 6th Friday and Sept 7th Saturday are $ 189.00 each night.  There are other hotels and resorts in the area and you can always stay at one of these if you wish. Also available are RV Campgrounds such as Estes Park Campground and Estes Park KOA just to name two.

 The Annual General Meeting will be held at the Rocky Mountain Park Inn in Estes Park on Saturday evening Sept 7th in one of the banquet rooms where the meeting will take place and dinner will be served.  The estimate for the cost of the dinner will be $ 34.00 per person if we have 50 or more people attend or the cost could be higher if less attend.  It will be important to know as quickly as possible who is planning on attending so we get a proper head count. Once we have our head count I will require that everyone who is planning on attending will need to send me their payment for the dinner as the hotel requires that everything be turned in by August 1st so the hotel can reserve the room and plan on the dinner.

There will also be a No Host Bar for those of us who wish to have a wee dram or whatever drink that you might like.  Let’s make this the best AGM ever and have as many of us as possible attend this year.  The setting for the Long Peak Scottish Festival is beautiful and should not be missed, for those out here In the West, this will be a wonderful opportunity to meet with fellow members from all over the country.  I will continue to provide information for the AGM on the Clan Douglas website www.clandouglassociety.org and in our Dubh Ghlase quarterly newsletter.  Cora and I hope to see as many of you as possible at the 2013 AGM

Best Regards,
