Hogmanay 2016


Shire of Myrtleholt,  Josephine
County, OR



December 31,
2016
   
 
  


 


                              

We are going back in time by 400 years to
December 31, 1600 and the development of the British East India
Company.  This was a significant time in history since this
company provided over 200 years of delights to the United Kingdom.
 We will be serving treats that were provided by this Company
such as scones, teas, shortbread and much more.  Come and
savour our feast board for it will not disappoint
you. 


 


The
daytime activities will include classes, games, fighting, rapier
and the infamous “Highland Scottish Sword Dance”.  Also,
 we welcome entertainments from any who wish to provide music
or bardic endeavors. NOTE: Accommodation is available on site for
$5.00 per person for the night so that you do NOT have to drive
home on such a “risky” night.


 


We
will serve traditional Scottish Hogmanay favorites including
Haggis, along with other great celtic dishes.  With our
stomachs full, and our hearts filled with joy, it will be time for
the women to put on their judging hats, and the men to wash their
knees!! The famous Bonnie Knees Contest will once again be the
highlight of the evening. But wait, this year there will be a
“Ladies costuming competition”  Donne your best Scottish garb
and let’s create the first ladies fashion show of the time. Oh, and
did I forget to mention, the gentleman will be judging this one.
 


 


Classes will be
posted soon….stay tuned.
