    Utah Games at Lehi June 11 - 12th

    Anyone going? I'm "thinking about it" again this year.

    Don't even know if its a little one or a big one...don't know if any vendors show up.

    Was really weird to go to the Prescott Games this month and have it turn out that none of the few vendors who came offered kilt pins - and I had a list of ten I "need."

    So, any feedback appreciated.

    The Thanksgiving Point Highland games are big. They usually have at least one vendor who will do the whole get up. I will be there hosting a clan booth. (MacGillivray) with the MacThomas clan.

    Thanks for the info. If I can get the time off for an early start up Friday may be there...still have that list of "needed" kilt pins.

    And I forgot to mention the Wicked Tinkers have performed every year I've been there.

    I plan on going. When I went last year, I was not that impressed with the vendors there. I never found anything that great. Mabey I did not look close enough...

    If you can't find the kilt pins you need there is always Ebay. I've found several nice antique pins and there are sellers that have huge selections of new pins.
    I'm planning to be there with my wife. (Keeps me out of trouble)
    Last year I relied on the weather man's forcast and missed the games. Not this year! As me ol' grandma Stewart would say "Yer not made of sugar nor salt so ye won't melt".

    How true, Brice-the rain strom in the middle of it all didn't help either!!

    Most likely I'll be there this year probably without my kilt as it's having issues about staying up. I have no more holes in the straps that I can use. Might have to use the red braces to keep the darn thing up.

    I'll be there, competing with Wasatch And District Grade 4. Stop by and say hello..

    It's a good size games, but the selection of good stuff to buy is very small...
