    Buchanan Tartan Lecture at New Hampshire

    A very big thank you to Peter MacDonald (figheadair) for his lecture on the Buchanan Tartans at the New Hampshire Highland Games.
    Unfortunately I had obligations for our Clan dinner later that night so I could not attend. Lady Buchanan did attend along with about 50 of our clan members and they enjoyed it very much. Peter cleared up several myths about the tartans which is always helpful.
    Over 300 Buchanans were on hand to greet our Clan Chief Michael Buchanan. And I noticed Peter in conversations with The Buchanan himself on several occasions.

    I did get several opportunities to speak with Peter over the course of the weekend and it was a distinct pleasure to meet him.

    Attendance at the games themselves was about 40,000

    It was my first time at NHHG, a great event and a good response to all my lectures over the weekend. It was especially nice to meet the Chief and his good lady, plus the massed Buchanans of course.

    I was unable to attend. Is there any recording or printout of the speech? I'm always interested in learning new things about stuff I thought I knew about!

    Any possibility of a future podcast on the topic for those of us who wanted to attend your lecture but were unable to duo so due to a previous dinner commitment. I would love to learn more about the Buchanan tartans.

    NH Games

    I want to thank the folks who gave me info on the events at the games. Saved me some unneeded aggravation dealing with the crowds. I heard Saturday alone hosted over 30K guests! (I attended the games on both Sat and Sun). The march into the parade field by the Buchannans was especially inspiring. I also saw the heavy games and was especially boosted when Mr. Tyler (from Texas) won the world championships with a throw of 95 ft 3/4 inchs. I hope to get up there again in the future. Since I was there with my son and grandchildren I was unable to do more than view the clan villages as a walk through.
