    Wonderful to hear these Games are going to be held!

    Here in California public gatherings of any size are still banned state-wide.

    Hence Californians travelling outwith the state to attend Games in nearby states.

    Thanks for the heads-up, I've not heard of those games. Very tempting! St George being much closer than Moab for us. (I looked, five hours closer.)

    If I'm still on furlough from work at that time I'll probably be joining you there!

    I did my DNA from two places and zero NA, disappointing and a bit surprising due to a large percentage of West Virginians, especially the earliest settlers (18th century, like my family) having Cherokee blood.

    Armadale Gathering now cancelled.

    This event is now cancelled (just the day after I posted it was proceeding). That's 20,000 people with not much to do on that day, except maybe iron pleats.

    My one COVID 2020 Highland Games hope has been mostly dashed, the Moab Utah Games, coming up in a few weeks.

    The Games were fairly small already, but being as everything in California is cancelled I was going to make the long drive and visit them for my first time. That would give me two Games in 2020, the Queen Mary Games back in February and Moab in November.

    But the Highland Dancing competition was cancelled, and just the other day I found out the solo piping and drumming and Pipe Band competitions were all cancelled too.

    As a piper, the thing I most enjoy at Games is the solo piping and Pipe Band competitions. If a Games is so small as to not have these I have little interest.

    So sorry to say I've cancelled my hotel reservations and Moab will be just another thing that I'll put off until some unknown time in the future.

    BTW my drive mileage to Moab (from Tustin) is almost identical to that from Portsmouth to John O'Groats. (I think my drive time is faster because I don't have road works issues.)



    I know people in the UK will go that distance to attend a Games, because at Bridge Of Allan there was a band which had made the trip from Jersey!

    Is that how to say it in Gaelic?
    Those ancient U Nialls from Donegal were a randy bunch.
