Yes, I sure did. You were located across from the
beautiful Clydedale mare :-). We actually stopped by
a couple of times since the Chief was listed in the
program and we had corresponded by email
a couple of times. The tent was busy but I didn't see
him there .. sorry. I would have enjoyed meeting him.
He has really done a good job a restoring the
Clan and going through the process in the
Lord Lyon court. Not many have done that
successfully and he should be encouraged
to speak out on the experience and even
write a memo on the various nuances. I was hoping
to talk to him about that experience.
We were at the massing of the bands in the
evening. It was a gorgeous event as always. It
really brings the spirit alive. Of course, Enunclaw
is a beautiful setting and so typical Scottish. Anyway,
I seen Major John Nichols as the leader of the massed bands.
Rick Murchie led the retirement of the colors.
Could the Chief have led the massing during the
opening ceremonies? We did miss that.
It was another great event and the Pacific
Northwest Highland Games Association deserves
a "well done". There were 72 Clans represented.
