Brave and the BC Highland Games
Brave releases on Friday June 22nd.
The BC Highland Games is on Saturday June 23rd.
Coincidence? [duh-duh-DUH] I think not! (Well... yes, I guess it is, really.)
I'm hoping to take the family to Brave at the Colossus in Langley, then hit the Games in Coquitlam on Saturday.
Anyone else planning to do a kilted double-header?
well, I hope to make it to the BC games - depends upon work schedule; "should" be working friday & off on saturday

Booked Friday June 22nd off from work, so we'll be going to an early show of Brave. (Hopefully the theatre won't be full of little Celtic princesses...)

Checked with the Colossus Langley Cinemas website and the first showing (non-3D) we are going to try for is at 12 noon.

I'd like to go to the games, but I'm working Saturday. Might try to see Brave Saturday night after giving the dog some exercise.

I can be found in the afternoon in the SFU Scottish Culture tent doing my turn and then, hopefully, in the beer tent with some of you lot.

Brave was great; and the main part of the story was not given away by the trailers. The missus and I both thought it got very happily dusty in the theatre at the end. Pixar retains its gift for story-telling. Wore my Auld Scotland kilt, and was the only kilt in sight, except for on the screen...
Cloudy and showers for the BCHG tomorrow.

Sorry I missed you guys at the games but had to work night shift on Friday. I did manage to get to see BRAVE this afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it. I wore (trads be warned) my SWK saffron kilt and plaid with a petrified wood brooch holding the plaid, a burgundy "highland shirt" and my Oconee 3" leather belt. A number of women remarked at how good I looked but the best comment was a young boy who on seeing me leaving the theatre said to his mom "That man looks like Fergus!"

Spent a very nice morning at the Games and left at noon, so I missed the thunder-showers for the closing ceremonies.
Picked up a new Crawford clan badge for my second-hand balmoral from the Celtic Studio booth. I'd previously seen it on Etsy, and since they are local I asked if I could pick it up at the Games.
The owner recognized my tartan and knew why I was there before I could even ask.
They make their own pewter badges, and I am very happy with their design; the stag's head actually looks like a deer (and not like Bullwinkle the Moose on a 'bad antler' day.)
Just as I walking to the gate to leave, I was approached by a smiling young lady with a microphone and a cameraman, who asked if I would like to be interviewed for the evening news, I politely declined; a minor crisis of confidence.

Sorry I missed the games this year. I had to work.
Took the family to see Brave this afternoon. It was a bit too much action in parts for the 4 year old, but it was an awesome story.
