New Tent Hosts Represent Southwest Games
By Louise Turnbull
It has been just a year since Bill and Claudia Trimble talked Marty and I into being tent hosts for TCA in Arizona. We are ever so thankful that they sought us out, because this has been a truly remarkable experience for us.
We started out with absolutely nothing except some camping equipment, some sage advice from the Trimbles and many back copies of the Bullseye full of information we could pass on to others. It proved to be a little costly by the time we purchased a larger tent, an association banner, and a few pieces of tartan to accent our clothing. I made a banner to use in opening ceremonies and another for our tent showing Marty's genealogy going back to David Turnbull born 1760 in Torryburn, Fife, Scotland. As the year went by we pieced together books and maps and other informative information.
