Highland Games 2005
The Flora Macdonald Highland Games were started in 1978 to commemorate the Scottish heritage resulting from the influence of the Scottish Immigrants to the Cape Fear region of North Carolina. The Games are held the first weekend in October on the Flora Macdonald Campus.
This year thirteen UNCP International/Exchange students and International Programs staff attended the Scottish festivities and experienced a wonderful day of traditional Scottish dancing, singing, sports, sheep dog demonstrations, food, crafts, and a lots more.
The Flora MacDonald Academy main entrance.
Cape Fear Bagpipers preformed throughout the day and lifted spirits with Scottish tunes.
The March of the Clans and the introduction of the guest Clan Leader.
Get those sheep! The sheep dog demonstration was amazing.
Michael (Taiwan) and Caleb (USA) may have taken the day too seriously.Monday, September 28, 2009P>
Yes, they had big weapons back then.
It is uncertain what they are looking at, but they sure look interested.
The deserts were tasty. I don't think they shared. Tobias (Sweden), Anita (Taiwan), and Ann-Marie (France).
Again, what is so interesting to look at over there?
They met Scottish folk with interesting stories about the games.
The bleachers offered a place to get in a nap between events.
