Last May, our NC State co-commissioners won an award that makes them the featured Clan next year at the Mint Hill Highland Games! Teri and Beth Roberts won BEST CLAN TENT at those Games, and now they will be The Honored Clan at the Games next spring. And we at the Nesbitt/Nisbet Society are going to be there to support them!
So we’re asking all N/N and their families to join in the fun and celebration, and attend along with us to support Teri and Beth. We want all Nesbitt/Nisbets to march with us in the Torchlight Parade and the Parade of Tartans. Last year, Mary Nesbitt Garrison of SC attended and marched with Teri & Beth; we want to triple that number of Nesbitt’s on the field next year.
The Games will be held next May 4th and 5th, 2012. The Torchlight Parade and Calling of the Clans will be Friday evening the 4th, and the Games on Saturday the 5th. The Games are located in Mint Hill, NC at 8850 Fairview Rd., at the Mint Hill Park on Fairview, I-485 at Exit 44 (Highway 218). The Games website is http://www.minthillhighlandgames.com.
The GA contingency will be traveling to NC together; let’s see how many states can be in attendance in NC. All those attending will be responsible for their own hotel accommodations, but we will give everyone the best options available, as well as a local restaurant for gathering Saturday evening. Sunday you’ll be free to travel home or visit attractions in the area, which we’ll also give details about in our newsletters, on the website, and on our FaceBook page in the next few months.
