The Twenty-seventh Year

Iolairan Highland Games -- Eskalya

July 11-12, 1992 (AS XXVII)

From The Page (June, 1992):

Come to the incipient Shire of Inbhir na da Abhann's Iolairan Highland Games and join us in a true "high land" (or is it Highland?) setting for all the joy and excitement of a Scottish High- land Games and gathering of the clans (Guilds, groups, SCA Households, etc.).

The site opens Friday at 4:00 p.m. for early set up, but there will be an additional site fee of $1 per person for the extra night. The site will open at 8:00 a.m. Saturday, no vehicles will be allowed into the site between 12:00 noon Saturday and 11:00 a.m. Sunday. Parking is available at the Ranger Station (about a 3 minute walk from the site). Vehicles will again be allowed into the area from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Sunday morning. The site closes at 4:00 p.m.

Please come join us in such events as the caber toss, the stone throw, the hammer throw, tug-of-war (start getting your teams together now!), a "creative Scots weapons" prize tour- ney, scotch hop, the Quest For the Heart of The Bruce, and many more fun and fanciful activities. Other competitions to be held will be the ever popular "desserts that travel well" (the judgeships for this competition will be auctioned), a bardic competition for Best Traditional Scottish Song (please provide documentation), and a Best 'Heather' in Any Mode competition. And, due to popular demand, the "Best Thief" competition will be returning as well. Garb competitions include "Best Knobby Knees With a Kilt" for the men and "Best Accessories In A Scottish Mode" for the ladies.

Along with all the fun and excitement listed above, your site fee entitles you to a groaning board lunch and feast on Saturday and a groaning board brunch on Sunday. There will be a country stew and bread dinner for those who set-up on Friday night.

Autocrat: Grania McNish of Eagle's Eyre (name/contact info).
