Change of venue for Scottish Congress
The Scottish Esperanto Association has had a booking for its annual Congress for quite some time with the hotel in Invershin, Sutherland. There were rumours that the hotel was possibly giong to be sold; but that did not worry us too much as hotels frequently change hands, and bookings are part of any deal. However, we were taken aback when the proprietor indicated that the building would no longer be a hotel; so our booking would have to be cancelled.
At present President David Hannah is seeking another venue. When we have concrete details, full information will be published; however, the dates (6/9 June 2008) and part of the world (northern Scotland) will hopefully be unchanged.
The unexpected often happens when conferences are being planned; but change-of-use for a hotel is not too common. Ironically, we had a fall-back position, but another group thwarted us when they made a very early booking!
Jen la vivo! C'est la vie! That's life!
103a skota kongreso de Esperanto
La Kongreso ne okazos en Invershin; la problemo estas la baldaŭa vendo de la kongresa hotelo. Tiaj vendoj okazos de tempo-al-tempo; sed bedaŭrinde la konstruaĵo ne plu estos hotelo.
Espereble la kongreso okazos samdate (6/9 junio 2008) ie en norda Skotlando. Ni sciigos ĉiujn kiam ne havos firmajn detalojn.
Pardonpeton denove; sed glateco ne ĉiam eblas rilate al planoj kaj aranĝoj!
