Registration is now open. As in previous years there are several categories of registration. Full program includes the chieftain’s reception, Ceilidh, lunches on Friday and Saturday,  the banquet and all business meetings.

Attendees may also register for some individual components such as the Ceilidh and the banquet.

The luncheon cruise on the Spirit is not included in the full program or any other option but is a separate item. To book for the cruise you must however, select and pay for that option on this page.


As everyone is aware, we strive to make our Gatherings cost neutral. Toward that goal the Gathering Planning Committee has suggested we might ask members to volunteer to sponsor some of the Gathering costs. For those who provide sponsorship for a minimum of $50, recognition will be given in the following ways (donation dollar amounts will be excluded):

  • in the Gathering program;
  • on the ACGS website Gathering page under Sponsors; and
  • event sponsor signs at the Gathering.

Options for sponsorship in 2019 include:

  • Bartenders;
  • Hors d’oeuvres;
  • Ceilidh;
  • Band (Glasgow Kiss);
  • Dance caller;
  • Educational speaker;
  • Pipe band accommodations.

Options for sponsorship are to be found on the registration form. If you have any questions, contact the Assistant Chieftain at Since the cost of each item is over $50, any amount over and above the actual cost of the item will be used to cover other costs.
