Thank you to all clan members who pitched in and did various jobs to make our gathering such a success.
At our Gathering in 2019 we celebrated our Clan Chief’s 100th birthday and his 70th anniversary of becoming Clan Chief. The Clan Chief unveiled a bench at Carn na Cuihmne and a reception for him was held in the Duke of Rothesay Highland Games Pavilion in Braemar with over 100 guests. Our gathering attracted clansmen from England, Scotland, N Ireland, USA,Canada, Australia and New Zealand. At the Ballater Highland Games our president Alan Caig presented HRH Prince Charles with a dram of his favourite whisky, Laphroaig. Our bannerman Jim Payne with Invercauld Highlanders USA, Gary Humphreys and Randy Finlay led our Clan Chief onto the games field, followed by a colour party of Alan Caig, Joan Farquharson, Jonathan Findlay and Hazel Elborne. At the clan dinner at Finzean House we had 72 diners. The local fiddler, Paul Anderson, composed a tune to celebrate our Clan Chief’s achievements and it can be heard on Youtube.
At the AGM a President Elect, Jonathan Findlay, was elected and it is expected that he will become President in 2020.
Our 2020 gathering will be held between 9 and 16 August 2020 when we hope to see you there.
Alan Caig, President
