Sinclair Gathering 2000
Sinclair Gathering 2000 (25 July to 3 August)
Many of you will be aware that John Thurso and I have planned a large
Gathering next year starting in London with a reception in the House of
Lords and then going to Caithness via Edinburgh to see the unique Rosslyn
Chapel. You need to make your own travel arrangements to the UK and home.
When you arrive in London go to the Central Park Hotel, Bayswater.
The proposed programme is as follows:
Tuesday 25 July Transport to and from Parliament
Reception in the evening at House
Stay Central Park Hotel, Bayswater
plus continental breakfast
Wednesday 26 July Transport to and from Parliament
Tour of Parliament
Transport to Station
Transport from Station to Hotel
Stay Capital Moat Hotel plus full
Thursday 27 July Transport all day

course dinner and breakfast
Friday 28 July Bus trip Edinburgh to Caithness
Stay in Caithness six nights inc.
Wed 2 August
Saturday 29 July Transport to and from Halkirk Games
Picnic lunch in Sinclair Tent
Sunday 30 July Transport to and from Church service
Monday 31 July Transport all day

Tuesday 1 August Transport all day

Factory, Cheese Factory
Wednesday 2 August Transport all day

Thursday 3 August Disperse
The total estimated cost for the above is £630.00 (six hundred and thirty
pounds sterling) per person for those sharing a room and there is a £50
(fifty pounds)supplement for a single person in a double room.
Further visits including to Orkney can be arranged on Thursday 3 and Friday
4 if people want them but there will be additional costs for these.
We can hold the very attractive prices provided we pay a deposit for the
rooms that we have reserved in the hotels by mid September this year with
the balance by mid June next year. The demand for hotel space in London and
Edinburgh next year is already intense. Thus all of you who want to come on
this great and unique occasion need to confirm their intentions and pay a
deposit of £65 (sixty five pounds sterling) to either Mary Selver in New
Hampshire or Rory Sinclair in Toronto by September 15.
Alternatively you can send the deposit cheque or draft to me made payable to
Sinclair 2000 also by September 15.
I look forward to seeing many of you when I am in the States next month and
also to welcoming you to the Gathering next year.
