It was with deep regret that despite our original intention to do so, Clan Forsyth Queensland, was  not able to fully participate in this function as a body, due to reasons related to the wavering of liability, to the event organisers, as a requirement of entry . After receiving legal opinion on the matter, we were advised that as an unincorporated body, that we could not make a waiver the legal liability on behalf of our individual Clan members, without exposing ourselves to personal liability, for this action.

The event organiser required this waiver of liability (see link below) for all major events as a condition of entry and as such we were not prepared to participate under these conditions.

Clan Forsyth Queensland, is currently investigating measure to allow us to participate fully in similar events in the future and looks forward to being involved again in any future Fassifern Highland Gathering events.
