Clansfolk far and wide are invited to join with the Society at the games, scheduled for Sunday, September 2, 2001. The games will be held from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM at Bogles Field, Essendy Road in Blairgowrie. The games, which will feature a performance by the Canadian Massed Pipes and Drums, will conclude a weeklong series of concerts and special events to be held in the town.
The games, which have been existence officially since the 1930's and unofficially for literally hundreds of years, will feature traditional highland athletics, dance and piping competitions, as well as a cycling event.
