We will be in touch with the Clan Gordon
shortly to arrange a special presentation!
Electric Scotland is sponsoring
a season-long “Best and Most Creative Clan Tent Award” competition
at selected Scottish and Highland Games. An independent and
anonymous panel of judges will evaluate the clan tents.
Judging criteria will include neatness, tartan use and clan
identification, creativity, friendliness and helpfulness. All
individual winners will go forward to a "Best of the Best"
competition at the end of the season.
Electric Scotland is giving a $US100 check to
the winning clan tent at each event.
A specially engraved wooden Wall Plaque will be
presented to each Winner by Electric Scotland and made by
FamilyCrests.ca. We chose wood so that clans will be able to
take this with them to other venues and it will be robust
enough to stand the knock abouts you get when packing and
FamilyCrests.ca is presenting a Presentation set of a
Decanter and 4 Whisky Glasses engraved with the clan name and
short history of the clan engraved into the inside of the box
and clan crest engraved into the top of the box.
