President's Letter
David McBee

As hot as it is and so many have fled the valley, we decided to just have a casual get together at Caskwerks Distillery on 8/8.  No program, just time together with a dram or two….

The Flagstaff Games were great and one of the best attended that I have been to.  The new location is a hit.  Good music, good friends, and a few new members that want to get actively involved.  A good weekend until someone let a campfire get out of hand.

David McBeeThe Prescott Games are on September 28th but I will be at a wedding in Maryland.  Make a good showing for us up there in the high valley.

Enjoy the new rains.  It almost feels like Scotland.  Well, maybe not…

The next cycle of events will be starting soon.  Games planning, Scotstoberfest, St Andrews dinner, Christmas at the castle, Burns Dinner…..  Pitch in, let’s have some fun.
