Greg you said you were going to 1 or 2 CO games right? the next couple of weekends look busy for Highland Games/Festivals. For some reason, here in CA we have a break between last weekends games and Pleasanton in 8 weeks.

Hi Suzanne

I've been meaning to write back to your several messages. I hope to do that this week!

I won't be making any of these Games events as a tent host, but I do plan to attend the Portland Highland Games to scope it out and plan for next year. I had high hopes, but given the impending expansion of our family, I am sorry to say that I don't want to be too far afield, and even planning to host a tent locally has proven problematic. Next year, I plan to do Portland, and maybe more. There is a small event in Dundee, OR, which I might try to see about, but I don't think they have clan tents. There may also be other local events.

All five of the ones I go to are here in the Denver area. Next year will add one in Colorado Springs which is a new festival. Other than that I will need to be retired before I can go much further. Hopefully that happens soon. ;)

David Livingston has set up at Tucson in the past but not recently. The others we need members in the area that would like to host a tent. If you know of someone..... :D
