  This one's right up in your neck of the woods; isn't it?   
   David is from the Cedar Rapids area, and he said some of his family and old school buddies will be coming out to see us at the fest.
   We also had some Clan Davidson members express interest in coming out to help man the tents; we used to have no problems getting volunteers when the Celtic fest at Living history farms was still going on. 
   We've been looking for another event in Central Iowa, now the crowd can start gathering again.

  We signed up for Clan tents for both this and the Quad Cities games in September.
 
  This is even close enough for the MN Celtic fans. Unfortunately it's the same weekend as the MN Scottish games, but much cheaper.

  Well our truck is finally in the shop being repaired after hitting a curb (very hard) in Sioux Falls, and damaging some stuff underneath.  David noticed it was handling funny and we were leaking fluid.   
  We were lucky it made it home to Papillion, where we filed an insurance claim.  Allstate wanted it fixed at the dealer,so there is where she lies in dry dock.
  We are hopeful the repairs will only take a week or two.
