My No1Rosemom.net genealogy website
will continue to grow. Please don't be confused.
No1Rosemom.com, was my original site. That site is locked
and can no longer be updated. That site continues to exist
but this one contains more up to date information.
Please come back often. We'll be adding
more old photographs, and family genealogy (even more on
my Scottish ancestry).

(Sorry this Reunion has past but it will give you the idea.)
141st Annual San Francisco Caledonian Club's Scottish
Highland Games and Gathering is the true name of the event.
It is held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, which are
near the junction of Hwy 580 & 680, Pleasanton, California.
This is the largest Scottish games and gathering
in the WORLD, not just North America. It is, I believe,
the oldest in the Nation and one of the oldest in the world,
having been held, without interruption since the end of
the American Civil War.
There are also accomodations on the grounds --- RV
or tent, should folks need or want to avail themselves of
a lessor rate to attend from afar (or near!) We who camp
on the grounds are generally piped to sleep at night ...
and to waken in the morning. Camping is available Thurs
thru Sunday nights. Make your reservations as early as possible
as space fills up and many of us have reserved spots when
attending last year, as is our annual habit.
Will the clan be holding your usual catered dinner
in the campground area on Saturday night? (yes) (the clan
is well known in California for its hospitality and Clan
Feast at selected Scottish Games)

Clicking links on the main site, instead of using the direct
link will retain the frame view that has links to camping,
accomodations and other information.
If you have never attended this event, you have really
missed something! Do plan to come join in the fun this year.
Yours Aye, Lauren
