From Roslin O Roslin, Summer 2000 (Vol 3 No 20), Rory Sinclair, Editor.
Short and sweet the message was but the news was big.
Malcolm Caithness, our Chief had challenged the New Zealanders
to follow the lead of the Australians and form up Clan Sinclair
New Zealand. Roy Sinclair of Dunedin took up the Challenge and
CSNZ is now underway. [ed.]
Hello from Dunedin,
I accepted your challenge to establish a Clan in New Zealand,
the position now is that I require guidance re the
formalising. The Video "Templar Legacy" along with
a CD supplied by Niven is being circulated around the country
and is being well received. Do you have to approve the
appointment of a commissioner and formalise the use of the title
Clan Sinclair. Thank you for your interest, and I trust the
All Black victory over Scotland played here in Dunedin within
sight of my lounge window is not causing a depression
in the Scottish Rugby world.
Regards from Dunedin NZ.
The Chief replied:
What great news and it does compensate somewhat for the lucky win
you achieved on Saturday. Of course it would be rude to beat
Am copying this to Rory in Canada, Mary in USA and Margaret in
Australia who have greater experience of running Associations than I do
and the potential pitfalls. I know they will be ready to help you. Each
Association is its own entity and you will draw up the
constitution in accordance with your laws. I have no say in how the
Associations are run and who is on them - that is up to those involved.
I am delighted that you use the name Sinclair in your title.
