May 2, 3 & 4, 2014|
Maverick Stadium, UT/Arlington
On Saturday, May 4, 2013, Isabel Johnston, visited with a young man who's Scottish connection
is by way of the surname: Scott, as in Sir Walter Scott, author of classics like
Ivanhoe and Rob Roy. In the background, John Aitken and Scott Fischer
visit with a representative of the
Salado Gathering of the Clans and Highland Games about their
annual event in November. (Photo by Teakell)

The move forward for the Arlington games, to the first weekend
in May, proved to be a real winner in 2013. Numerous guests remarked on how much more
pleasant it was than in past years when the event took place on the first weekend of
June. We couldn't agree more! Our location in 2013 was the same as it was in 2012,
which allowed us to "work three sides" of the tent and we routinely had festival
guests engaged at all stations. We want to thank all of you stopped by to visit with us
and we particularly want to thank the Society members who turned out to help. We had an
excellent crew on hand when it came time to tear down on Sunday afternoon and that makes
such a difference! Thank you one and all!
This event is free to the public.|
