The 50th annual Grandfather Mountain Highland Games and Gathering of the Clans is coming up this week - July 7 - 10. Anyone planning to go? I sure am! I enjoy everything about this event, but the most special thing to me is the Thursday night torchlight ceremony and calling of the clans...so much tradition and history in a simple ceremony! If you've got the opportunity to go, please do! It's a great event and this year promises to be the best ever. Also be sure to catch Off Kilter playing in the Celtic Groves - high-energy celtic music at its best!

You are so right about he torch light ceremony. It was beautiful. I was just glad that it didn't rain all weekend. We got their on Tues. we stayed on the rowdy side,beside to stagger trail. We are already making plans to go next year.

Sekhmet~ Do you camp on the MT? Is so~ is it Rowdy or Curfew? Hope you get to make it!
I'll be camping if I'm there. And I *camp* curfew, but go over to rowdy to party till it's time to drop. ::grin:: It's just that once I decide it's time for sleep, I want it QUIET. You'll be able to find me fairly easily...just look for the huge canvas tent in the middle of Coleman-land!
