    Arrrrrrh! And add to this the dreaded "Curse of the Quaich"!

    If anyone does keep it longer than the aforementioned two weeks...the pleats of his kilt will all straighten out and he will have eight yards of floppy fabric hanging about his scurvy quaich keepin' butt!

    I look forward to seeing this wee Quaich and reading the log book that goes with it.
    The hielan' man he wears the kilt, even when it's snowin';
    He kens na where the wind comes frae,
    But he kens fine where its goin'.

    Great idea. A grand new tradition! Kudos to you Steve, for the emphasis on broader travels so ensure that the Quiach reaches every continent where members want to host it.
