With the cut off date for registration for the 2016 gathering approaching at the end of next month we thought it would be good to let you all know where we are in terms of confirmed numbers. Currently we have 40 Confirmed attendees, this is obviously pretty far short of the 60 we need. If you would would like to attend or know someone that would please get in touch using he details below to register your intention to come.
Clan Gathering 2016 or not?
We have had a Clan Gathering every 4 years since 1996 (so that is 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012). With the global recession we have seen the numbers being able to attend drop off.
So the BIG question is do we have a Clan Gathering in 2016?
We really need a critical number to commit to attending, for the event to be worth all the effort of
organising it. We have decided that this minimum figure is 60 people for the 4 days of the event. So if you plan to attend the 2016 International Clan Gathering - Thursday 1st September 2016 please record your attendance by filling in the attached form along with a £50 deposit, which will be refundable (less any currency transaction costs) if it does not go ahead.

If we have 60 or more registrations by the 30th September 2015 we will proceed with the event, otherwise, we will, unfortunately, have to cancel it.
We will also provide news on the number of registrations and other information regarding registrations on the website.
Fingers crossed we have enough attending, as the International Clan Rattray Gatherings have been very popular and fun way of getting to know a bit of our shared heritage while also meeting other Rattrays
