Hosting a Clan Tent
Thank you for your interest in hosting a Clan Tent.
The Society will provide a start up kit and pay the Festival fees for the first year.
If you plan on hosting the following year, or at other games, hold on to the kit, if you are looking at a one time use, we ask that you return the kit.
Many games require you to bring your own popup tent, while many others require the use of their own tents. Most games include a table and chairs. Details of what specific games provide are available on the games website, along with tent sponser applications etc.
Our startup kit includes the following:
Copies of last two newsletters
Sign in sheets
Boars Head Stamp
Copies of Clan Encyclopedia
In addition to what the society provides, you will need the following;
PVC pipes or other poles to hold banner above tent
Assorted bungies to hold pvc pipes or other poles to tent poles as in pictures above
Side-Cutter to remove zip ties
Netting to hold pictures along side of tent
Fasteners to hold pictures
In addition, you may want to bring an ice chest with ice
Bottles of water
A bottle of scotch (optional, where allowed)
Small plastic cups
Some tent hosts like to add a game for the children, so we created the
MacAlpine Sheep Game which is downloadable from our website. The game consists of lost sheep, that can be distributed to other clan tents, along with a scorecard to be signed by the tents where the lost sheep are located. Upon completion of the scorecard, the child can return to the MacAlpine tent for a treat.
If you add the game, remember the treats.
