Friday night we're meeting up with the Ettes and Teers at B.B.King's in Downtown Nashville! Attire is M'Crack shirts and kilts for the men, M'Crack shirts and jeans for the ladies.

The attire for Saturday is M'Crack colors - Saffron kilts for the men and M'Crack colors for the ladies.

The Chieftan's toast is at 3pm both Saturday and Sunday at the Magic Hat (if it's still called that) pub.

See you all soon!

TDOT was working on i24W near mile marker 62 at the rutherford/davidson county line. They were installing new highway signage. hopefully it's already finished.

EDIT opening day. They installed a new message board. Looks like that's done.
