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!

La nuligo de la arangxo kun la hotelo en Invershin estas bedauxrinda. Unue mi pensis, ke Invershin estus tro fora loko por kongreso, sed poste mi pensis, ke mi tre sxatus partopreni kongreson en la graflando de miaj antauxuloj. En la gaela lingvo, tiu regiono en Sutherland nomigxas "Duthaich Mhic Aoidh" - la lando de Mackay/McKay. Espereble David sukcesos trovi tauxgan kongresejon en simile interesa loko.
