>Greetings All...
> Yesterday in Guysborough, Nova Scotia intrepid mariners Laura Zolo and the
>enigmatic Captain Jack pulled into the town wharf under sunny skies and 30
>knot winds. An eclectic crowd of 250 townsfolk, media, local dignitaries,
>entertainers, sailing knuts, the just curious, and a significant smattering
>of Sinclairs were on hand.
> Trying to get accurate description of the Laura-built 7 Roses had proved
>difficult, but she is an admirable design, and obviously sturdy. Laura
>herself is really quite a lady, but reports have neglected to speak of her
>beauty. Cap't Jack is "on the run" from some movie about his life - he's
>quite a character.
> Notables included Delayne Coleman and Richard, Niven, Laura's brother
>Andreas visiting from Italy, Neal Sinclair, and Jack Sinclair. It was a
>sincere pleasure to meet Tim Wallace Murphy (we did not dicuss hiking, but
>we spoke for hours) and Marilyn Hopkins. May you all have the opportunity.
> Following the arrival, many great discussions were held on the wharf,
>encompassing a wide variety of views...surprisingly, given the geneology of
>some participants, the town was taken without bloodshed.
> Delayne and the Prince Henry Sinclair Society are to be commended for the
>day's events, which included an early -evening reception at the Guysborough
>Town Hall. Attendees included the aforementioned as well as Clan Canada
>President Bill Sinclair and Former Afton Band Chief Kerry Prosper. Donald
>Culp acted as MC for the event, and introduced the notables and then came
>the point where he was to introduce The Chief and Clan Piper.
> Despite our large number of international flights, Halifax Airport is the
>lowest rung priority on the national airport scene and their customs
>and folk are inefficient, to say the least. Niven may give you a better
>blast about them maybe someday...but it can take a coupla hours...
> So Donald said: "and now, I was supposed to introduce Earl Malcolm of
>Caithness at this point but...
> And Rory stepped out of a darkened doorway with a flourish booming:
> "and indeed you may"
> and Malcolm walked in to wild applause...
> Give a Piper a stage...
> The principles then retired to the de Barres Manor Country Inn for an
>evening of quiet contemplation and prayer, no doubt...
> Today the Chief of the Clan Sinclair will present the specially
>commissioned "Sword of Peace" to Cheif Ben Sylliboy of the Mi'k maq
>Nation...and if you're into symbolism it doesn't get much better than that.
>The ceremony takes place at 3pm at The Clan's Prince Henry Sinclair
>atop Boylston Park.
> The sun is shining and there is a fair wind...it should be a great day for
>the Clan in Nova Scotia...
> wish you were here,
