Event Date and Time:
PLEASE NOTE -- THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th OCTOBER, 2013 We are hoping the selection of Albury as a venue for our Clan Gathering will give members from both Victoria and New South Wales an opportunity to meet. Of course all members of our world-wide Clan are welcome should you be in the vicinity at this time. The venue for Saturday’s Afternoon Meet & Greet with a light afternoon tea and the evening Dinner is the Best Western Hovell Tree Motel, on the corner of Hovell Street and Wodonga Place, Albury. There will be an informal, extra-ordinary meeting when members can put forward their ideas for the betterment of the Society. A member of each family will be invited to give an outline of his/her family’s history. You may find another cousin in the room! Perhaps you have old photos or documents to share. A light afternoon tea will be served. Room Hire and Afternoon Tea = $15 Time: 2.30 - 4.30 p.m. On Saturday Evening a Dinner will be held in one of the Motel’s Conference Rooms. Time 6.30 – 10.30p.m. The menu allows for two choices for main course and sweets (served to diners alternately). Special dietary needs will be provided, so please notify when booking if you have special requirements. All needs will be passed on to the Events Manager when finalising the arrangements. Dinner + Room Hire = $45 p.p. Drinks not included. On Sunday, 20th a Bus Trip from 10.30 a.m. to 5p.m. A tentative booking for a comprehensive tour of the district, including Hume Weir, Beechworth (an hour to see the sights of this historic town of “gold rush” days and lunch - own choice and @ own expense) also Yackandandah before returning to Albury. A central pick-up/set down point will be arranged and those participating will be advised. If we have 10+passengers the cost will be $50.p.p. Fewer than 10--$60.
We do hope there are lots of Clan members (and your friends will be most welcome) who are able to attend this gathering. In order to finalise arrangements the Secretary will need to have numbers by Thursday 26th September, 2013. Numbers can be added for meals in the final week before the Gathering, but not deducted.
The Scottish Shop will, hopefully, let me have Clan MacRae merchandise on consignment to sell at the Gathering as they have done previously, so you may like to be prepared for a little shopping. Most items will be in the range of $30 to $60 range.
