Virginia Scottish Games -- This Weekend!

I can hardly wait for the Games this weekend. I've never been to the Highland Games here in Virginia. I've only been to the games in Forres, which were excellent.

I am really excited and hope we Virginians put on a good show this weekend.

I am disappointed. Wearing bicycle shorts with a kilt breaks with tradition.

Chuck, I absolutely agree! I will be as God intended this weekend!

I agree with Chuck- my vote for the traditional way ;-)

Becky informs me that it is actually proper to wear shorts under the kilt for only two occasions:

1. Performing in the highland games
2. Highland dancing

All other times, it is considered "improper" to wear undies.

As I didn't perform in the games last weekend... nor was I dancing...

I hope that you will come out again this year. We are going back to a two day format to allow for plenty of time to debate the undergarment (or lack thereof) for the kilt! September 13 & 14, 2008.
