At the Highland Games, the Seattle Knights perform regular shows for the crowds all weekend.  Songs are sung, fights ensued, and short plays including Lorna Doone (The Shortbread version), the History of Scotland, and new this year, MacBethlander, were performed!  

Ah, the Highland Knights.  Sad to say, I don't have a cast list and I don't know most of their Highland names!  Oh well... have to make due with real names...

Once again, Kyle screams at seeing me and my camera, then poses extensively... oh the contradictions... 

In a grievance fight without weapons, Ann soaks poor Tracy in a horrible act of revenge...

Dave throws Kyle through the air.  #6554 in the series, collect them all!

Master Tinker, sword maker extraordinaire, does his longsword demonstration at Camlann

And many proud songs are sung, and butchered too... Not sure what was causing John's reaction here...

The special effects budget for the Quickening was extensive...

MacBethlander begins!  Behold the Three Witches...

Another head is removed from it's shoulders in MacBethlander.  Remember, there can be only one!!

Ah, MacBeth schemes...

There can be only one, but why did it have to be HIM???

Great Battle Lords weary from combat...

Karl and Kim doth do battle royal!

With Pole Arms, Karl and Don waged deadly combat!

Our exhausted Lords at the end of the day...

...and their proud ladies, all the reward an honorable Knight deserves or desires...
