    146th Highland Games, Pleasanton, 2011

    Has anyone does a Pleasanton "roll call" yet?

    If not, here goes!

    I'll be there with the band, LA Scots, in muted Drummond of Perth kilts, black waistcoats, and black hose (I think).

    I'll look something like this



    Could we arrange an XMarkers' meeting?

    Several will be there the entire weekend, some for just a day. The Nor Cal Rabble traditionally meets for photos each day at the MacNaughton clan tent (red & white canopy) after the parade or 1:00 p.m., whichever is later. Look for the familiar tartan.

    Here's a link to info on the event: http://www.caledonian.org/games.html

    1:00 is out for me, because we play at 12:55 on Saturday and 1:05 on Sunday.

    But I will try to stop by your tent! Richard

    PS Looks like our kit for the weekend will be black hose, muted Drummond of Perth kilts, black sporrans, black waistcoats, black neckties, black Glengarries (boy that's a lot of black), and mid-grey longsleeved shirts. Not much colour to the kit; maybe it will make our kilts stand out??

    I'm there SAT and SUN. My ability to meet anyone is dependent on the whims of my niece, who I'm visiting, and when the whisky tasting will be held (My ticket doesn't tell me!).

    We will be there Sat. and Sun, be arriving around 10:30 Saturday morning. We have a room, so will available for a dinner event Saturday if anyone is up for it.

    I'm really looking forward to meeting a few more of the Rabble (though after numerous attempts I am now confident that Dale Seago is a computer generated member and not a real person! )

    See you all then.

    I'll be there from Friday afternoon (to help the Clan McLaren conveners set up the tents) through the Sunday evening take-down. The clan's annual general meeting is also taking place at these games and I will be involved in those evening festivities both Fri and Sat night.

    None of that, however, will prevent me from getting into all sorts of mischief during my unsupervised hours.
