The ACGS 2016 Annual Gathering.
The Annual Gathering was held on October 7th & 8th, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Reagan National, in the Washington DC area. It was another abbreviated Gathering which was well attended and highly successful. This will be the last abbreviated Gathering for at least two years.
Plans are well under way for a traditional three day Gathering in September 2017 in San Antonio, Texas. Hosts, Randy and Teresa Walker anticipate a large Gathering. There will be a Ceildh, a Chief and Chieftain’s reception and of course, a traditional banquet, piping music and even some highland dancing with audience participation. Sir Malcolm MacGregor of MacGregor and his wife Lady Fiona MacGregor will be attending from Scotland. Come to meet them and also check out the photographic books produced by Sir Malcolm. Wonderful coffee table books.
The Gathering hotel will be in the heart of the River district of San Antonio and a short walk from the Alamo. What more could we wish for? Here is just a sample.
The deadline for receipt of applications for scholarships has passed, April 1, 2016. The next application deadline will be April 1, 2017. See Educational Assistance tab. An additional scholarship will be offered for 2017: an American Clan Gregor Piping Scholarship at the North American Academy of Piping and Dancing in Valle Crucis, NC. The Scholarship will cover the cost of tuition, board, lodging and meals for one week at the Academy in July 2017, around the time of the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games.
