Winner of the "Best and Most
Creative Clan Tent Award"
Gatlinburg Scottish Games & Festival
Our many congratulations go
Clan Turnbull for
winning this award. Here is what the judges had to say...
Clan Turnbull at
Gatlinburg Scottish Games & Festival, Gatlinburg, TN, USA, was the
first place winner - hands down! Their tent was a real garden gazebo
with ivy "growing" on the fancy scrollwork. They had flowers in a
Turnbull Whisky decanter...a fully outfitted Turnbull bear, complete
with handwrought targe and sword...along with the usual books and
register book and refreshments. Their display of Highland critters
was attractive and brought young and old alike to smile and enjoy. A
friendly "reiving" of sheep from their neighbors, the Lockhart's, kept
the day full of fun and laughter. The Turnbull tent was filled with
tartan and things Celtic...Turnbull memorabilia and Turnbull history.
Every inch of the tent had been well thought-out and planned.
