    Central NY Scottish Games Aug 9 2008

    The Central New York Scottish Games will take place August 9, 2008 at Long Branch Park in Liverpool New York (near Syracuse).

    I have plans to fly from LAX back with my family to visit Syracuse that week and we will plan to attend the Games. If there are any X markers around the area that plan to attend, I hope that we can find a place to meet to say hello.

    It should be easy to spot, I'll be the Kilted Chap yelling loudly at my wild and crazy boys.

    I could be there depending on what day we decide to have my sons birthday party.
    I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature's ways of fang and claw or exposure and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow. - Fred Bear

    I have informed she-who-must-be-obeyed that I am going with, or without, her. Since her sister lives in Liverpool, I'm guessing she will tag along.

    That could work. I think the opening ceremony begins at noon. We live 2.5 hours away, so getting my family up and out of the house will be my biggest challenge. We're not morning people.

    Bump. It's this weekend. Woodsheal may be there, along with other members of our Twin Tiers Kilt Club. I can't wait!

    My wife's office picnic is on the smae day this year. She's a senior manager and thus obligated to attend. Looks like I'm going to have to sit this event out. Have one on me. The next event I'll be attending are the Scottish Games in Altamont at the end of the month.
