High Desert Celtic Games-Madras, Oregon

Postby beadmom » Sat Aug 13, 2011 6:42 am

The tents are up, the flasks are full, the athletes are rolling in, the pipers are warmed up and the tea house is being resurrected from the wind and I have a new bottle of Lansanta.

Oh..and I got my first byline photo in the paper. The caber tossing from last year. "Photo by Livingston At Large Photography" :D

Tomorrow is going to be a great day!

Clan MacLea and Clan Livingstone are here!

Slante!

A great time was had by all!

James Livingston Sanders took 5th place in the games.

***Note** If Laird Rob Maclean says "Take a picture under MY KIlt.....I have shorts on." DO NOT believe him. I can vouch for sure now that he in fact had a Jewish ceremony performed on him :shock:

I also found two relatives on my Irish side. One that I have known for years but we did not know we were relates. We are easy to figure out because we are all descendants of Buffalo Bill Co(a)dy.

I have got to find me some more festivals this year. This cannot be the last one.

Hey Ginger!

Awesome! We had a great time at Highlands Ranch, Colorado (the Colorado Scottish Festival and Rocky Mountain Highland Games) this weekend as well.

Congrats on the photo credit, as well!

Congrats to James!

Well, if you're looking for other Games to attend... I know Suzanne Livingstone (livingstoneancestry) is moving on from Vancouver and Seattle, having conquered those, and will be attending Pleasonton, CA! Beyond that, though, I'm not sure of other events "nearby" but if you find anything we would of course love that!

Bravo! Pictures or links to pictures welcome!

Yes, I think Laird MacLean's effects should stay right where they are.

We want nothing to do with them! :!:
