Dear INS Fellows,

Plans for the INS Congress in Toronto are moving along nicely and I expect that it will be a great success. I very much hope that you will participate. We are planning a day bus tour of important 1812 battlefields, as well as a chance to see world-famous Niagara Falls. And we are hoping to have a reception while sailing on Lake Ontario.

If you have not visited Toronto before, you may not realize what a great city it is. The link TORONTO EVENTS INS 2013 shows some of the activities that are available, as well as information on arriving in Toronto. You may very well want to extend your stay and enjoy our great city and its great summer weather!

As a reminder, you must reserve your rooms at the Royal York no later than 29 June in order to qualify for the group rate. The best way to register is to do so on-line. Please use the following link so that the INS gets full credit for your reservation:

In order to get free wifi in your room and free local and toll-free calls, it is necessary to also become a member of the Fairmont President's Club, prior to arrival at the hotel. Membership is free and can be done through a link shown on the reservations site ( If you prefer to make your reservations by phone, the toll-free number is 1 (800) 441-1414. 

We will have some very special participants and programs, and I will send you more information on that in a future email.

Best Napoleonic Regards,

David Markham
INS President
