    Will the 2nd annual scottish games be held at the RiverStone Center? If so, do you have the dates established yet?

    Clan Montgomery will be participating in the event and will have a tent on clan row!

    Thanks and let me know the dates for 2010 as soon as you can.

    Allan, I’ve forwarded your request to Drew Orient, the Executive Director of ARCA, the sponsor of the Scottish Festival.
    He or his staff member in charge of the Clans will contact you.
    Thanks,
