I can ask around too to see if anyone is able to bring them and take good care of them.
The offer is still there but they have to be picked up by the 13th. I am in North Surrey.

They come every year to the Highland Games in Enumclaw, WA, where they mop up. They truly ARE great and I've heard them quite a few times. They are the main reason I attend the games.

Hi John,

I haven't been to "The Highland Games" in Enumclaw for a number of years, but I like the Caber Toss, the Hammer Throw and the Dancing. The Massed Pipes are the highlight of the day's events. I wouldn't be surprised if you can hear them in Black Diamond!

Woodya Wanna go this Summer? Maybe we can talk the 200% Square-Head into joining us for some "much needed" Cultural Improvement and Haggis! Might even make it Multi-Culteral and have some Lutefisk on hand to compliment the Haggis, just like the old days when the Scots and the Vikings would "Party" together!

Best Regards,
Terry

I just stumbled upon this thread. Not beeing a club or lounge person I, unfortunately, missed the event. How did it go?
Maybe there should be a crossreference in the forum to inform members if an event is held in their neighborhood. E

The festival was quite successful for an inaugural attempt. Everyone is excited to do it again next year. There were a few last-minute cancellations but we still had a large turnout. Cal your cornu spirals were well received and I'll get them back to you soon - thanks again for lending them out.
