Getting in some practice time.
First Saltire kilt I've seen in person. VERY nice!!

More vendor tents.
How to twirl the pleats right out of your kilt!
I was impressed with the number of Utilikilts and other modern variations I saw at the games this year. Sadly it was too darn hot for me and I didn't take as many pics as I'd have liked. Lots to see, lots to do, lots of stuff to spend money on. I even managed to buy Karen's Christmas present at the event. :rolleyes:

I was at the games that year too. I saw the kilt I think you're talking about. Unfortunately I can't see the pictures now though.
I do remember it being really hot that day. I had to go buy a cooler shirt.

Sorry about the lack of pics now. They were on my former website and got deleted when we shut it down after moving to Manitoba.
It was indeed a hot day! Perfect location for the event, too.

Al, you'll just have to find the negatives or the prints and scan them back in...

Maybe after work today I'll have a look on my old computer. They might still be there. If not, it would take days or weeks to find the prints. I have no idea which boxes they would be in.
