International Gathering - 2008 - Banff/Canmore, Canada
The Gathering was held on Friday, August 29 through Monday, September 1, 2008 (Labour Day Weekend) and was held in conjunction with the Canmore Highland Games. An interesting and full event schedule was arranged for the long week-end including a Meet & Greet, a President's Reception, "Dining-in" with The Chisholm, a Western BBQ/Ceilidh, Golf, Coach Tours of the Banff Area including a picnic and Afternoon Tea at the Banff Springs Hotel which proved to be one of the highlights of the Gathering. This hotel, built in baronial style by Scottish stone masons in the late 1800s, is without doubt the crown jewel of the Canadian Rockies.

Attendance at the Annual Canmore Highland Games (www.canmorehighlandgames.ca) on Sunday, August 31st was also arranged. These Games, one of the largest in Western Canada, attract participants from all over North America and Scotland.
Our Chief, Hamish Chisholm of Chisholm and his family attended and was recognized, along with Lord Bruce as "Co-Chief of the Games" and as such participated in many of the official functions.
The sound of the pipes echoing along the Bow Valley with the majestic Three Sisters watching sedately overhead was truly an exceptional experience. Many visitors spent some additional time in the area as Banff National Park is a world famous international tourist destination offering a variety of activities ranging from heli-hiking in the rugged Rockies to shopping along Banff's famous Caribou, Elk and Bear Streets.
