    Thanks unclevenus, I will probably be there at least one day, as like you, it is the closest games to me. Any plans for a meet up time and place?

    We'll be there on Saturday - I like big crowds lol - all the exciting stuff happens on Saturdays but it's definitely calmer on Sundays in my experience. As for parking, yes, the traffic going into the park area can get backed up but they do a pretty good job of moving everyone along and directing you to a good spot - every spot is good as they have shuttles running from the parking area to the front gate on a continuous loop all day.

    Also advance tickets from a few local vendors and online are 3 bucks lees than day of show tickets.

    I was a little sad to note that Clan Buchanan doesn't currently have a tent listed in teh clan area - we have in the past but I guess all my people moved..lol I really don't know how that works as I've only ever been on the spectator side.

    I just signed up for a family membership to the St Andrews Society of Central Florida though so will be happy to visit that tent and I know my kilt-maker will be in attendance so I hope to finally meet her and show off the fantastic kilt she made for me.


    I've enjoyed attending the games for about the last 10 years but this will be my first one kilted so I am doubly excited!

    The Dunedin Brewery supplies a truck full of great beer and if you plan to have more than a glass or two it's a good idea to get the refillable pitcher - If I recall correctly, you get about 4 from a pitcher and the refill is cheaper than buying them a pint at a time. Plus you get to keep the pitcher - in fact, if you have one from previous games, you can just start right in with refills.

    So if any of you see me - Buchanan modern kilt, pony tail and bald spot, handlebar mustache, say howdy to Hippie Lee. If it's warm I will most likely have a t-shirt on from some metal concert I've been too - never know which until day of show. lol. I might just wear a regular shirt though...

    I'll be in between a few tents in the clan village. Send me a message if you want to stop by at one of them. Mention xMarks and you'll get a free dram of some sort. This is not a promotion for the site by any sort, but it's just an excuse for a dram.

    HippieLee, great point. Dunedin Brewing is a good one, too. It will be a cold one, but perfect for keeping our cool ones cold. Scotch can always warm us up, though.

    As for Buchanan not being there. Pretty crazy. Would think they'd definitely be one of the mainstay tents.

    I was going for sure, but after learning that tenting this year wasn't possible for our comissioner I may not go. Still giving it a solid thought, though.

    So my daughter is especially interested in the Quidditch match - anyone have any idea when that is? Can't find it scheduled on the website other than them saying there will be one...

    Hah thats a good question.. The only thing I know about it (thanks to the advertised picture) is apparently all the players will pretend to ride broomsticks while running around a field.. It might be a good laugh

    I will be there at 8AM myself. The wife goes earlier for her job with the county. I was suppose to have a tent there for Clan MacLaine but do to a double knee injury that did not happen. So I will be there for the beer and entertainment instead.
