With the country in the grip of a heat wave, Clan MacDougall held its Annual General Meeting in the cool mountains of western North Carolina. Grandfather Mountain Highland Games formed the backdrop for our gathering.
Beginning Thursday night on the mountain the clans assembled, Clan MacDougall’s presence was voiced by two dynamic women, Tammy Rondinaro and Kelly Wright. Their war cry gave fair warning to all assembled that Clan MacDougall’s intentions were honorable but other clansmen could be at risk.
Early Friday morning Buzzy Bramble, Southeast Regional Commissioner and his wife Susan, had the Clan MacDougall tent area set up and ready for the guests. Everyone met Don Northcutt, our new VP for membership, for the first time. Many came from long distances to attend the Games and Annual Meeting. Among those were Beth and Bruce McClintock the Mid West Regional Commissioners from Missouri. Past Presidents and their wives were also in attendance: Wylie and Debbie McDougal, Jack and Nancy Kane, John A. and Pricilla McDougall. Although unable to make the meeting, Dick and Betsey MacDougall made it to the Barbeque on Saturday evening.
