APRIL 6 - TARTAN DAY CELEBRATION AT THE STATE CAPITOLr

In place of our monthly meeting, we're organizing a special event on the State Capitol to celebrate the official Arizona Tartan Day. We invite all - Scots and non-Scots alike, to join with us at Wesley Bolin Plaza at the Arizona State Capitol located at 205 S 17th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85007, on Wednesday April 6th from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM
 
We ask for participation by every segment of the Scottish community here in the Valley
  • Bagpipe bands and individual pipers and drummers
  • Highland Dance Academies
  • Royal Scottish Country dancers
  • Heavy athletics competitors
  • Musicians  - please come and play individually, or jam with others
  • Daughters of Scotia
  • Scottish American Military Society
  • Re-enactors of CROFT, SCA, PSHS,
  • Genealogists
  • British cars (with Scottish flags, etc)
  • Clans
The CSA can provide a limited number of pop-up tents, but we ask you to bring your own chairs and tables. Let us know if you need a tent and if you can make a special presentation (music, dance, athletics demo) to "liven" things up a wee bit.
 
For information contact organizing Committee members:
Mike Fox:   Mobile:  480-390-0911, education@arizonascots.com
Don Finch: Mobile:   480-252-0152, president@arizonascots.com
 
We imagine that employers, teachers and others will understand our enthusiasm for this great privilege and will understand why we're wearing our kilts and tartan proudly to school and/or work!  Perhaps a "hall pass" from school or work will be granted so we may extend our lunch break by  a couple of hours to participate in this historic state-wide celebration.  (Buy lunch at The Barmy Brit food truck, as they will be on site serving up some delicious fish & chips and other British/Scottish fare.)
