Sinclair Gathering 2000

Dear all

Many of you will be aware that John Thurso and I have planned a large

Chapel. You need to make your own travel arrangements to the UK and home.

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.
