The Pleasanton Games are coming up at the end of August, the weekend of the 30-31. We will be participating with a set in the adjudication, and a tent in the Celtic Heritage area. If you are going to be at the games, come by to watch us dance, and staff the tent for a while. I will post again when I have a specific time we will be dancing.

The Jean Patrick Memorial Dance is the Saturday evening of the Games. Jean Patrick was the dancer/dance teacher most responsible for the founding of the Sacramento Branch. She was killed in a light plane accident before I started dancing. In fact I’m not sure any of us currently dancing in Sacramento knew her, but the event on Saturday night is a way to honor her, and her role in the founding of our branch. The program and information on location and registration are available here. Cost is $12.00 for youth, and $18.00 for adults if you get your registration in before 20 Aug. You can register and pay using PayPal at the above link. Several of us are getting a motel suite in Pleasanton for Friday and Saturday nights. Depending on how many people decide to join us, we may not be able to offer more than floor space to for your sleeping bag, but if you need crash space, let me know.

Modesto Games

We will be dancing at the Highland Games in Modesto again this year.  As always, it is the first Saturday in June; this year this will be 7 June.  If you haven’t ever been to the Modesto Games, they are held in at Tuolomne River Regional Park, a beautiful park along the river with lots of big trees and shade.  This is the last year Sonya will be dancing with us, as she is moving north soon.  If you would like to come dance with us, or just drop by to say hello you can find more information, including a map and driving directions at the St. Andrews Society of Modesto website.
