Notice to all Dragoons serving and retired. Your NCR Chapter now has a plan for our gathering in 2018. Mark your calendars for the weekend of 15- 16 June 2018 in the nation’s capital.
We have reserved 75 rooms at the Four Points Sheraton across the river from the Parliament buildings in Gatineau. The address is 35 Rue Laurier in Gatineau. You can now reserve your rooms by calling the Four Points at 1-888-627-8089 and tell them you are part of the reservation for The Royal Canadian Dragoons Association. The room rate is $159 per night plus applicable taxes. Reservations need to be made by 1 May 2018 or we will lose the room block. I suggest you make your reservations as early as possible. They will hold your room with a credit card.
We will start the weekend with a meet and greet Friday night at the Four Points Sheraton at 1900, followed by our Association meeting Saturday morning at 0900 in the same location. Saturday afternoon will be an opportunity to visit some of the sights our national capital has to offer. We will have information on Parliament tours, the War Museum, the Canadian Mint, the National Art Gallery and the Museum of Civilization. For those golfers in the crowd we can even organize some golf if there is interest. For the golf I will ask you to indicate your interest on the attached registration form so that we can properly plan for a golf game. As I mentioned in my first update you can also just relax and visit the restaurants and the bistros of the Byward Market or hit the shopping meca of downtown Ottawa.
The highlight of the weekend besides our association meeting, will be a four hour dinner cruise on the Ottawa River on board the Ottawa River Queen. You will want to be back to the hotel by 1800 for the departure of a dinner cruise on the scenic Ottawa River. The cost per person for the weekend besides your hotel is $100.
So that we can do the remainder of the detailed planning, we need you tell us by the end of January 2018 if you intend to come to the Gathering of the Dragoons 2018 and then payment will be due to our treasurer by 1 April 2018. Please fill in the tear off form below and send to Peter Atkinson either by post or email. All payments are to be made to Bob Hart our treasurer by cheque and should be made out to RCD Association NCR Chapter. Payment is to be sent to Bob Hart at 72 Beechfern Drive, Stittsville Ontario K2S 1E3. If anyone wishes further information they can contact Peter Atkinson at email@example.com or 613-424-6262. My mailing address is 1343 Caserta Place, Orleans Ontario, K4A 3C1.
