KC Games

Saturday I made the 4 hour trip to Kansas City for their Scottish Games.  It was amazing! It has been almost 10 years since I have been to a games and I loved every minute of it.  I spent about 3 hours watching the Intermediate and Premier dancers.  Watching the performances was so much fun. I loved watching the different skill levels and different dances.  (This dance is the Irish Jig.)

After hanging out watching dancing for several hours I moved to the Pub Tent to watch a performance from Tartanic.  They are a Celtic rock group.  And of all surprises I know one of the pipers in the band! Mike McNutt used to pipe for me and the rest of the group that did Scottish dancing in Huntsville. Such a surprise to see him.  His group is really good and a lot of fun.  They travel around to a lot of renaissance fairs.  So maybe you could find their group at one.
I had hoped to see Mrs. B, my old dance teacher at the games, but she wasn't there (her son graduated from high school this weekend).  She sells dance and other Scottish products. She also used to live in Kansas City.  Although she wasn't there for the games she may be coming up for a workshop this year! I may just have to go so I can be taught by her again!

Truly a fantastic weekend.  I'm looking forward to the games in October here in STL!
