Chief's Message

Officers of CCI,

Many of you have been kind enough to send me welcoming congratulations on being officially recognised by the Lord Lyon as Chief of the name of Cunninghame. Actually this matter will not be completely ratified until the 23rd January 2014. In one sense it would have been better to have kept the
matter under wraps until then.
I made a promise to those who were at the dinner in Glasgow some three years ago that I would formalise my position as Head of the Family if you so wished. With your encouragement I started making the necessary arrangements to accomplish this. After a few months of preparation I was confident
that the matter would be settled in a further two or three months. However a Respondent appeared and both my lawyers and the Lyon's office had to consider the matter much more rigorously. The matter then dragged on for over two and a half years, took a great deal of my time and I might add,
money. Although I never doubted the outcome, it has been an irksome delay for all of us. For this I apologise, but there was nothing I could do to speed things up. On the 23rd January we will have finality and I greatly hope you will be pleased at that.
In the Western World life has been pretty tough over the last few years, but the economic outlook both in the United States and in Britain seems to be gradually improving. Let us hope that 2014 will be a good and happy year for all of us and for Clan Cunningham International.
I wish you a successful and rewarding New Year. May God bless you all
John Cuninghame"

President's Message

Hello Clan Members,I wanted to express my gratitude and I am sure I am speaking for those who attended the Triennial based on the wonderful feedback on what a great time everyone had, so much effort was put in by Nancy her husband Paul and Daughter Kendra, and sister Mary.You all were so open in welcoming us all, everything was perfect from the Hotel to the Meet & Greet, to the Dinner and entertainment and Games.the Fergus Games offered a wide arrangement of entertainment for all ages I think one of my favorites was the step by step instruction and demonstration on building a dry stack wall which is how they do this in Europe.I urge you all to visit Canada and the Fergus Games and support Nancy and her family we were so well received by the locals and the businesses, and the royal bank of Canada was very pleased in assisting with the money exchange at a better rate than at the machines in the Airport, just a useful hint.So now we go into saving mode again for our next Triennial to Scotland in 2019 many wonderful plans in the works so watch for updates.Please enjoy the games as this game season will be winding down soon.
Take good care Kelly Cunningham
CCI President

2016 Tri-Annual Meeting

The 2016 Clan Cunningham International Tri-Annual Meeting was held  on August 12-14, 2016, at the Fergus Scottish Festival. Starting with a Meet & Greet at the home of Mary Cunningham. The setting was beautiful. Saturday found everyone lined up for the opening ceremonies when a severe thunderstorm came thru and tried to drown us out. Due to the weather, the game shut down at 2:00pm. The Tri-Annual Meeting was held Saturday evening at the Clan Dinner. Sunday found the Games under blue skies. Again, we wish to express our thanks and gratitude to Nancy and Mary for a wonderful job of hosting our Tri-Annual get-to-gether.
