The Twenty-eighth Year

Highland Games -- Inbhir na da Abhann

August 13-15, 1993 (AS XXVIII)

Site: Eklutna Campground, Eklutna, AK

From The Page (August, 1993):

Come to the Eklutna Campground and join us in a "high land" (or is it Highland?) setting for all the joy and excitement of the Iolairan Highland Games.

The site will open on Friday at 4 p.m. for set up, but there will be an additional site fee charge of $1 per person for the extra night. The site will open at 8 a.m. Saturday and vehicular traffic into the site will be stopped at noon. Parking is available at the Ranger Station, a three minute walk from the site. Vehicles will be allowed into the area from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. Sunday. The site will close at 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon when vehicles will be allowed back in the area. This is for your protection - we have real cabers this year and would hate to have any caber/vehicle incidents.

Please come join us in the caber toss, stone throw, hammer throw, tug of war (start getting your teams together now), a creative Scots heavy weapons prize tourney, scotch hop, the Quest for the Heart of The Bruce, and many more fun activities. Other competitions will be the ever popular "desserts that travel well"; judgeships for this competition will be auctioned off, 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. Garb competitions include "Best Knobby Knees With a Kilt" for the men and "Best Accessories in a Scottish Mode" for the ladies. The competitions will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Along with all the fun listed above, your site fee entitles you to a groaning board lunch and feast on Saturday and a "left over brunch" groaning board on Sunday. If you want to set up early, your additional $1 per person will also entitle you to a country stew and bread dinner to ease your set up Friday night.

To get to the site, (directions omitted).

All kind souls who are willing to lend a hand (constabulary, heraldry, site setup/take down, kitchen help, etc.) please contact the autocrat, Grania McNish of Eagle's Eyre (name/contact info).
