The Games have evolved from early trials in Scotland to select the strongest and best men for the King. Now, folks of Celtic descent gather at Games around the world. The Games provide an opportunity for family entertainment involving competition, fellowship, and appreciation of heritage. Planning for the Games is a yearlong activity involving Society members, the local community, and the many vendors, musicians and athletes that participate in this event. Numerous families, from California to Canada, travel to the area and camp at the park or stay in local Motels. At the Games, there is always something going on - the athletic competitions, the musical performances, children's activities, the open air market of Celtic goods, Highland dancing, Clan gatherings, and the FOOD! Come Friday night for a free Ceilidh.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or volunteer for the event, Contact the Douglas County Scottish Society at 1224 NW Walnut PMB 167, Roseburg, Oregon 97470.
