Upcoming Events for Goustevin Scotland

Summer Barbeque / Picnic ~ Sunday 11 August 2019

This year’s informal barbeque / picnic will be held at the Manson’s at 23 Island Bank Road, Inverness,
IV2 4QS
from 1.30 pm to 5.30pm.

The traditional format works well, but as a reminder to regular attendees and a memo to new members the following applies:

  • The event is free to members, their family and guests of members. A complimentary glass of bubbles or soft drink will be offered on arrival.

  • If the weather forecast is favourable, there is lots of room in the garden (jungle). If we are unlucky, there is cover for at least 35.

  • Bring your own food – something to pop on the barbeque or a picnic, failing which at least a packet of crisps.

  • Bring your own eating utensils and drinking vessels. Tables and chairs are provided.

  • Most importantly – bring your own bottle.

Rouen Grand Chapter ~ Weekend of 16 November 2019

The annual Grand Chapter in Rouen this year will be held on Saturday 16 November. To date we have no details from France and these will be forwarded as soon as they come to hand. For those who have not been to a chapter in Rouen before, if there is enough interest from the foreign Embassies, our French friends lay on a weekend programme starting on the Thursday or Friday evening with guided visits to tourist attractions in the city and / or countryside. Rouen is a beautiful city and a warm welcome is always extended to our members.

As to indicative costs – in the region of £150 per person per day all-inclusive, but excluding travel to / from Rouen.

Those interested in attending this event should contact Nicol at nicol.manson@btinternet.com . If there is sufficient interest, he will co-ordinate arrangements.
