2004 St. Louis Scottish Games & Heritage Festival

Every year, the second weekend of October finds many laddies in kilts and lassies in tartan sashes at Forest Park-St. Louis, for the Scottish Games. This year the rain held off, but the presidential debates at Washington University interfered with traffic and parking, making the Friday Calling of the Clans smaller than usual. However, Saturday was full of athletics, band and pipe competition and Clan Tent hospitality!

2006 Orlando, Florida Games

Bob Turnbull with daughter, Vanessa, hosting the Turnbull tent at the Orlando, Florida games.

Bob Turnbull of Ocala, FL reports on the Orlando Highland Games, where he and his daughter, Vanessa hosted a Turnbull Tent. The weather this year was very beautiful, unlike the games of last year. Lots of wonderful sunshine and 80 degrees made for a great time. I want to present some of the people that are of the Turnbull family who passed by the tent. I mentioned the Orlando games to a gal I met at a convention in December who saw my name tag and indicated that her mother was a Turnbull. I told her she should come. She, her husband and son, along with her uncle on her mom's side drove up from Melbourne, Florida to enjoy a great day at the games. Her name is Elizabeth Cook. Her husband is David Cook and their son is Maxwell Cook. Her uncle is Robert W. Turnbull (another Bob!) from Clearwater, Florida. Bob was familiar with TCA as he indicated that he has been a member.

The parade marched through historic St. Charles on Saturday April 3rd when Tartan Day, officially April 6th, which honors the United States' Scots heritage, was observed in Missouri.

Keith and Therese Turnbull, who live in St. Louis and serve as regional TCA Coordinators, worked with Judie Chaboude, president of Missouri Tartan Day Festivities, to promote Missouri’s Scottish heritage and the Turnbull Clan. Missouri is primarily a state of German and French ancestry so the few Scottish descendants have had to work tirelessly to promote their heritage.

How important is sponsoring a clan tent at your area Scottish Highland Games? As we found out at the 43rd annual Mesa Arizona Scottish Gathering & Highland Games, it can be very important! This was the second year that we sponsored a Turnbull Clan Tent. On Saturday afternoon, Feb. 24, we met Donna Sullivan and her family. She told us about her deceased sister, Dolores (Dee) Springer, who had been active in the New Hampshire Highland Games and Clan Turnbull. Dolores was well known for artistic cake making, including a Turnbull Clan Crest cake she made for the AGM in 2002. Claudia and I remembered visiting with Dee at the NH games in 2002. Dee shared with Claudia (a nurse) about her illness.

2004 Dunedin Florida Games

dunedin flWell this April after many many years of wanting to go to the Dunedin Games they turned out to be somewhat disappointing. For a 38th year event it was a rather a small venue. Also arriving I found no tent at our spot. So had to "find" the information booth to see what was up. Pretty disorganized. The Trimbles showed up mid morning and Claudia had packed some snacks and drinks which was very nice. They also brought "Turnbull" items to help with the display. The weather was picture perfect.
