5/15/2022: More updates for MWC 2022 in Moncton, NB, Canada!!

*****. Updates #MWC2022Moncton (May 13, 2022) ******

• Our host hotel deals will only be available until this Sunday May 15, 2022.  After Sunday the MWC rooms rates will not be valid.  If you haven’t already done so, please book them by this Sunday to get the rate and booked block of rooms.

• Also please ensure any extra tickets purchased for a spouse, family member is paid up by May 15, 2022.  We currently are only able to accept e-transfers to GMSAHEAVIES@gmail.com – password “moncton” or by check to Greater Moncton Scottish Association inc (PO BOX 26004, Moncton, NB E1E 4H9) 100 cad, or 83usa . You can go also go on our website www.monctonhighlandgames.com to pay with credit card I believe that has a 4.54 service fee , go down to athlete companion pick the number of tickets  you wish and then pay, if your buying more then 8, you will have to do it twice.   What does this pass get your companion:  access to the games all weekend, access to all the concerts and access to the athlete’s tent which includes free meals at both banquets, access to the water, food etc each Saturday and Sunday that is available for the athletes.  

• We had a slight delay in our map of the games, but expect it to be posted this week for everyone.  We are on the softball field location,  heavies have ball field to the left of main gate #5, #6, and map will show you where each of the throwing areas and athletes tents will be along with everything else that will be happening on the grounds.

• We realize that some car rentals are hard to find , volunteers will try to accommodate getting people to and from as best we can, but there is a new Airbnb car rental business just starting up in Moncton (turo.com).  we will have a shuttle going all 3 days from the host hotel to the grounds running every 30 min or so.  Keep in mind the hotel is less than a mile away so easily can be walked as well.

• Shirts have been ordered (2 per athlete),  we will be putting everyone’s country flag on their shirt,  so if you can please confirm to Bryan MacLean that the country he has for you is correct (we will be posting that list Monday or Tuesday this coming week).  

• Patches are in, they look great,  they are iron on as well.

• Online store-  covid has hit some of the supply chains hard so we had to revamp a few items with different brands which we know we can get in time for the games,  they will be uploaded tomorrow and we expect to go live Monday.  The link will be shared as soon as we get it.  

As always it’s great to see everyone sharing and using the hashtag #MWC2022Moncton.  Let's keep it going and always appreciated to help promote our games and this great event.

We will have chalk on the field for those who use it for stones etc,  Primochalk has stepped up to supply for us and will certainly help.

Any questions or help on anything please don’t hesitate to reach to Michael Dickens or Bryan MacLean on facebook or email bryan@sbc-fs.ca.

Looking forward to hosting everyone in 5 weeks.
