Ball - Fine Dancing
Picnic - Good Fellowship
Bowl - Football in Kilts
Edinburgh, and that night a Ball in the ancient Palace of Holyrood
celebrated the return of the Stuart to the Scottish Capital."
Lads & Lasses!
The Standard of Scotland has
been planted on the San Francisco Peaks. Give a shout, raise the Clans and
rally 'round your hosts the Bonnie Prince and Miss Flora Macdonald for We
Make History's annual Scottish Highland Ball in cool and beautiful
The Tucson Barn Dance!
The time of Bonnie
Prince Charlie and the Jacobite rising of 1745 (know to Scots simply as "the
'45") gave birth to many legends. One of these is the story of the White
Cockade. It is said that upon arriving in Scotland the Bonnie Prince plucked
a white rose and pinned it to his hat. The example was quickly imitated by Jacobites everywhere who made cockades of ribbon or cloth and proudly sewed
them to their hats, caps and bonnets.
Letters from The Highlands
Lads & Lasses,
What wonderful memories we have of the 2010 Highland
The Highland Social saw clans assembled from all corners
of Pangaea in their vari-coloured tartans. From Sri Lanka, New
Hampshire, Connecticut, Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Flagstaff, Lake Havasu
City, Prescott, Wickenburg, Phoenix, Tucson, Sierra Vista and all parts
of The Highlands they arrived. With brave hearts they showed themselves
ready for any dance - come what may!
Bonnie Prince Charlie's Angels did not disappoint. A
plethora of lively tunes kept all on their feet.
A sea of happy faces swirled about the great hall of the
Highland Ball for many hours - all upon a fine and glorious evening!
The Highland Picnic was a day of joy and refreshment for
all. Smiling, laughing children of all ages engaged in lawn bowling,
badminton, volleyball, the tossing of the horseshoes and the throwing of
the white disc.
The Highland Bowl was well-matched in talent and
determination with numerous feats of valour resulting in a 7-7 tie.
And now a brave new season of history, dance and
education for families beckons us forward. On to London! On to Victory!
On to Glory!
The Bonnie Prince
