District Conference - 9th - 11th October 2009

District Governor Tom Murphy, Bridgid and the Rotary Club of Athlone extend a warm invitation to our Rotary friends to visit Athlone for the 83rd Rotary Annual District 1160 Conference. Athlone is located in the heart of the Midlands and is easily accessible by road, rail and bus. 
The brand new four star Sheraton Hotel, situated in the very centre of the town, is the venue for this event. The distinctive glazed tower offers beautiful views over the River Shannon and the town of Athlone together with the four counties of Westmeath, Roscommon, Longford and Offaly.  You will have time to visit local attractions and sample the wonderful food on offer in the many and varied restaurants - and of course shopping in our two large shopping centres and interesting local shops.

The Conference Committee have put together a varied and informative programme with the theme "Our Changing World".  On Friday night there will be great musical entertainment for you to enjoy at our internationally renowned Dean Crowe Theatre and on Saturday good food and fun at the Banquet and Ball.  Golfing at the famous Glasson Golf Club, where the course was designed by Ryder Cup Winner Christie OConnor Junior, will provide a challenging game for the seasoned golfer.  

District Conference offers a great opportunity to meet our friends in the Family of Rotary and indeed to make new friends.  Help us give a great Irish Welcome to our Group Study Exchange Partners who will be visiting us from Japan.
