CMSNA - Clan MacMillan Society of North America
2022 CMSNA Gathering to be held in Calgary
The Clan MacMillan Society of North America (CMSNA) Gathering will take place in Calgary, July 20 - 24, 2022. This will be the first time a CMSNA gathering has taken place in Western Canada. Calgary (named after a hamlet on the Isle of Mull) is a city of approximately 1,300,000 just east of the Canadian Rockies. In 2018, The Economist magazine ranked Calgary the fourth-most liveable city in the world. The city and nearby environs have a lot to offer visitors and we hope to take full advantage of that. See a website with more information about Calgary's attractions.
A subsequent gathering is being considered for September 2024 to be held in Mississippi.
Attractions and events
The gathering will start immediately after the Calgary Stampede ends, itself a ten-day event. We invite you to attend the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth" before the gathering. Potential events and activities include: Exploration of Lake Louise, Banff, Kananaskis Village and a visit to Royal Tyrrell Dinosaur Museum at Drumheller.
Accommodations may be arranged directly with Hotel Alma (or whatever desired hotel). This is located on the University of Calgary campus. Another PDF provides a more detailed overview of Hotel Alma's rooms and amenities. Reservations and payment must be made directly through the hotel, not CMSNA.
We encourage you to bring your children or grandchildren. If enough kids attend we plan to arrange camping for people with campers, tents, etc.
