2019 AGM at Stone Mountain Highland Games

We are thrilled to announce that our AGM will be at the Stone Mtn. GA Highland Games in mid-October! These are always very large and well attended Games both Sat. & Sunday, with around 120-30 Scottish Societies attending, multiple Pipe and Drum bands, vendors galore, competitions, great entertainment tents, etc., and a Parade of Tartans that just stretches on forever. If you can imagine 3-10 members times 120+ clans, well, that's a lot of kilts in the parade and lined up on the field at one time!

The Games are Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 19th and 20th, 2019, with a reception and check-in on Friday evening the 18th at a location to be decided.

Nesbit, Nisbet's and all spellings of our great name are invited to attend, both members and non-members. Members are encouraged to vote on issues that may be under discussion; non-members can attend but are not allowed to vote. Keep in mind we will be looking for volunteers for the position of Secretary to being the first of next year; they must be a member of the Society in good standing to take the position.

New Dinner Option!

We are now offering Saturday evening dinner only at $35 per person. No goody bag will be available with this option. Dinners will be held at the Courtyard Atlanta Northlake, our N/N host hotel, at 4083 LaVista Road, Tucker, GA. Make phone reservations for hotel rooms in the Clan Nisbet name at 770-938-1200. Dinner choices must be noted by Oct. 1st, so be sure to get your form in ASAP!

We still have spaces available (even at last minute on Saturday at the games) for those who wish to attend the dinners both evenings and receive your goody bags with great N/N products! The bags contain new items not available on our website; so, come see us and be the first to show them off to your family and friends! Registration is still $75 per person which includes both evening meals and a goody bag.

Tickets to the Highland Games and entrance to the park on Sat. & Sunday are available through the webiste for Stone Mountain at www.smhg.org. Order your tickets for the games early to receive a discount, as well as your pass to get into the park. Or if you live in the area, purchase your park pass in October since it lasts until the end of Oct. next year.
