Discussion Weekend 2015
« on: January 29, 2015, 12:54:21 PM »
Just to let you all know the bookings are already coming in thick and fast for the final weekend in Grantown and we fully expect it to be a sell out again. If you need lift access to your room, want to stay extra nights or really want to be in the Grant Arms rather than the Garth get your booking in soon  ;D

Hi,

Then we have signed us up for the Discussion Weekend 2015. We are coming from Norway, two from the west and one from the north, and we're very excited to travel to Scotland and meet other members and listen to exciting speakers!

See you there ?!

Stig and I look forward two meeting up with you and Maggi again  :D
 
It was when we visited you last summer that we started thinking of traveling to Discussion Weekend 2015. We're very excited and are absolutely sure that we are going to have a great time in the Highland :)

(Especially when I see that there comes a true Viking)

Marit, Ian is right, you will have a wonderful time at the Discussion Weekend.
Last year was my first time and it was one of the most enjoyable weekends I've ever had. Already booked again for this year.
See you in October.

Hi All as of today there are just ten rooms available for the Discussion Weekend so if you are planning on coming get your booking in fast  ;D Most of the still available rooms are at the Garth a two minute walk across the Square, the hotel has lovely large rooms but no lift access.
