Upcoming Events?

Post by ksmsparkles » Tue Oct 18, 2016 3:41 pm

Hi,

I am wondering if there are any upcoming events or get-togethers for the Morrison clan. Do you know which Highland Games you will be at next year? Do you have groups who go to certain Celtic Festivals? Are there any conferences or opportunities to learn more about our clan history? I would really like to attend some events!

Thanks,
Kirah Siobhan Morrison

Kirah,

I just spoke to the individual that maintains the list of games and such we have people at. He's is away from home at the moment, but will give you a detailed response next week when he can again access his list.


Sorry for the delay.
Regards
Chris

Hi,
Sorry for the delay, I was out of state at a new festival in east Texas. There is a link below that should take you to a listing of the 2016 events where the Clan Morrison Society of NA usually has a booth or tent. The 2017 list will be compiled over the winter and posted in January. The 2016 list was and the 2017 list will be published in our Society newsletter, which is emailed to members. If you are not a member, please consider joining!

In answer to some of your questions, there are members who attend many events across North America and set up CMSNA booths. Those are on the list below. There is also an Annual Meeting held at a festival each year. The location changes yearly to make it accessible to as many as possible over time. This year was in NH. As far as I know, no location has been set for 2017. It will be posted on the Society Web site and in the Newsletter. For learning more about the Clan, we don't have meetings or training. I would recommend this forum, our website http://www.clanmorrison.net and our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/cmsna/.

Here's the link to the 2016 schedule. I'm fairly sure it will be much the same in 2017, but events come and go :

My thanks to Chris for answering, I didn't have my password with me on the road!

Hope this helps!!!

My wife and I usually attend the Glengarry Highland Games in Maxville, Ontario, Canada in early August. It's very well attended, both for the athletics and pipe competitions.
