ID:	41478g mi into you good company. My names Is James McCraley and live in Chino California. I am descended from Clan Urquhart on my mother's side, dad is Irish. I've been interested in kilts my entire life. I took to wearing tartan at the Renaissance Faires with my great kilt but am now ready for serious half kilts. I'm afraid I've caught the tartan fever. I look forward to your conversations and hope to have words to offer them in the near future.
    Alba gu brąth!

    I'm close to you, in Tustin.

    As you might know our biggest Highland Games/Scottish gathering is this weekend, May 28 & 29 at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa. It's the first time these Games have been held since 2019 and everyone in the local Scottish community is really looking forward to it.

    I'll be there tomorrow (Saturday). I'm piping for one of drummers in his contest but otherwise I'll just be hanging around and having a pint or two.

    BTW the Games are officially called The United Scottish Societies of Southern California Highland Gathering and Festival but they've been rebranded as ScotFest. Around here we usually call them the "Costa Mesa Games".

    If you do attend Costa Mesa tomorrow I'll be looking something like this
