The Clan Keith Society, USA, Inc
Winner of the "Best and Most Creative Clan Tent Award"
At the Loch Norman Highland Games 2004

Our many congratulations go to The Clan Keith Society, USA, Inc. for winning this award. Here is what the judges had to say...

The Clan Keith Society, USA, Inc., was awesome.  It was attractive, well-thought out...with a place for genealogical discussions or business...and a place for fun and lunch.

The most creative thing that The Clan Keith has to put real carpet on the floor of the tent...and on that place a "throne" for honored members of the group - such as James Keith who was awarded the Clansman of the Year Award on Saturday night.

Brand new members are ceremoniously seated upon the throne to fill out their membership papers!

They had books and flowers and horse armor...and art and pictures and displays of Keith lands in Scotland.  Everything was arranged artistically and beautifully.

The people were friendly and having a wonderful time with friends old and new. They were also active in the Loch Norman Games - as they were in charge of the Ladies Athletic Events - the tossing of the broom, the haggis toss...and tattie race, etc.
