Symposium 2021 - Dungarvan

Post by Chris McDaid » Wed Aug 11, 2021 6:40 pm

All,

We are now taking bookings for the 2021 Symposium in Dungarvan, based at the Gold Coast Hotel. As always, there will be plenty of providers/instructors attending who will be running workshops, paddles & skill sessions. The nearby Copper Coast is one of the most spectacular in the country and not to be missed!!! As per usual, there will be a "pre Symposium paddle" organised on the Friday, weather permitting. The organisers would appreciate that bookings are made as early as possible as the hotel staff will need to be suitably organised for the required numbers attending. Anyone wishing to travel early and stay in the hotel on Thursday eve, please contact the hotel directly......

https://www.goldcoastgolfresort.com/

The Symposium will take place 1st - 3rd October.

The booking form can be found here...........

See you all in Dungarvan,
ISKA Committee

URGENT NOTICE

To everyone who has booked many thanks !!

The organisers will be in touch by email a two weeks before the event to confirm accommodations.

Please be advised there are only a small number of Single rooms available. There is a supplement of €15 per night for single room allocation.

However these rooms will not be made available until all participants have booked. That dictates what rooms we have available for single occupancy.

Please be patient / You will be emailed regarding accommodation options and it will be first come first served. Those who have paid the supplement first will be allocated a single room.

Once those allocations are up you will need to share so please give it some thought as to who you would be comfortable sharing with should that arise.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT HOTEL DIRECT !!!

They have NO SAY OVER ROOM ALLOCATION !!!

Many thanks for your patience.

Brian Mac
Meets Officer.
