    Kansas City Highland Games - June 13 to 15

    Alright you midwest kiltie boys... there's a gathering in the middle of June in Kansas City for their Scottish Highland Games.

    The website for the specifics is at http://www.kcscottishgames.org/index.html

    On Friday, there will be a demonstration of the athletic events which will include me and the folks from KMBC TV-9 in a caber toss. Stick around on Friday night to see KC's own "The Elders".

    Saturday night, the band will be some group from Philadelphia called "Barleyjuice". I hear that they sing about kilts and drinking.int:

    Bring the kilts... bring the single malts... bring the women... bring-on one great weekend!

    I'll be there for sure. I have recently been introduced to the Elders music and I like it! I will be there Saturday too.

    I've already got Saturday on the calendar! I may see if I can take a vacation day on Friday.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the KS/MO rabble again!

    Count me in; I will be there even if I have to sleep in my Xterra.

    Barleyjuice ROCKS, great music to sing along with and throw a couple down. They had good beer at the precursor event, we never even had to pay, and we almost sprouted roots. int: :beer:

    Mods, I don't have any connection with the sellers. Just trying to pass on the savings.

    For those who will be there on Friday, PLEASE make sure to attend the demonstration of the Highland Games! From what I hear, it should be "one for the books". Hell... if I AM throwing the caber... anything goes!

    As for the beer that they "may" serve at the event, it had BETTER be top notch. Homie don't chuck telephone poles for nothing!!!

    What a great show, listening to your CD's on the way to the pub will be so much better now that I saw you LIVE.
