Clan Associations postings

Dear All:

This thread/topic is intended as a forum for the
Clan to post their Notices and the Clan Associations
to post their web sites, notices of meetings and
gatherings. Even Newsletters ( by permission of the
Clan officials) are permitted here.

The correct procedure for posting here is to:
A: do a reply to this message. Erase the subject heading
above and then >
B: enter the name of your association and connection
to the clan.
C: Follow on postings are then replied to that unique
association. I would think that subject and dates
would then be appropriate subject headings.

The intention is to allow the Clan to have a thread
and each respective association to have a thread that
it can maintain with its newsletters and notices.
That way the basic thread of the association can be
referenced by URL in emails and other web sites.

Please forward this message to the Clan headquarters office,
its international associations and
other affiliated groups that may be interested in
posting here. Posting this notice to the Surnames message boards
and Surname mailing list or sending to Secretary of the
Clan, the Clan Associations and the Septs of the Clan
would also be appreciated.

Best Regards
John A Hansen
Board Admin

Dear All:


The 2002 schedule:

Please forward to others.

Colquhoun Clan Gathering
The annual Colquhoun Clan Gathering is always in the same week as the Luss
Highland Gathering which takes place on the third Wednesday of July each
year - in 2002 that is 17th July. The clan has a five day event around
that event and always includes its own 'gathering' at the traditional site
of Cnoc Elachan. The son of the Colquhoun Chief, Malcolm Colquhoun, Younger
of Luss and heir to the title will be at the Luss Highland Games where he
carries out the duties of Games "Chieftain". There is also a Clan
Gathering at the Games and in the evening there is a Ceilidh. On subsequent
days there are tours of the Clan lands, castles, churches and battle sites
and a visit to Loch Lomond and Inchcaillioch (or Inchmurrin) where Sir
John Colquhoun was slain by the MacLeans in the 15th century. 2003 is the
400th anniversary of the Battle in Glenfruin and there are plans for a
large Gathering and re-enactment event in Glenfruin on the weekend
19th/20th July 2003. Clan MacFarlane are coming from the USA with their
groups. See http://www.clancolquhoun.co.uk for more details.
