Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

Challenge 1 Answers, complete

For this first round of the Dragonfly in Amber Highland Games we have a record number of names in the hand-knit felted cloche – 32, to be exact.

Those included in the drawing:

Murron (lovestoknit), Camille (anyspunthread), Morven (BessE), Elspeth (georgethegirl), Murine (Bwarnergroup), Imogene (Haze), Nemetona (tandemsandy) and Shaylee (soniacolleen) of Beauchamp; Sassenach (sassenach), Monique (moniquews), Breanna (Threescompany), Aithbreac (carminmoon), Maeve (Trooper22), Phaedra (curlykat), Lileas (knitwithisis), and Nannag (LCBraun) of Clan Fraser; Kinley (Rehnbo), Fenella (knitpickins), Mrs. Fitzgibbons (jules1960), Ceili (Theknittingmama), Seonag (cursedgreenswtr), Brigid (ktreu), Fiona (caela), Isabeil (Emersch), and Ide (Annaed) of Clan Mackenzie; Marsali (mommaowie), Edme (mememichelle), Senga (robyn), Mary (Jenifair), Arafel (Kigeliakitten), Alpean (COAlpine) and Joan (Vivian5)

I'd like to congratulate the Fraser Clan. Every single person submitted answers this round had a perfect score.

When Edie pulled the name out of the hat she declared “It's has an Edie E.” So, Elspeth, Edie thinks it's pretty cool that both of you have the same starting letter.

Round 1 Clan Standings:

Beauchamp: 129

Fraser: 96

Mackenzie 118

Murray: 102

Additional awards: (for bragging rights)

Early bird: Imogen (Haze) of Clan Beauchamp submitted her answers at 1:54 p.m. Feb. 15, the day they were posted.
Sneaker: Fenella (knitpickins) of Clan MacKenzie submitted her answers at 11:23 pm on Feb. 25, 37 minutes before the deadline.


39 of 60 clan members participated in the first round of th Highland Games, that's 65 percent. This round, the four cheiftesses sat out, since they sponsored the round.

32 clan members got a perfect score, including every one from Clan Fraser.

Clan Fraser had 53 percent or 8 of 15 members participate, earning 96 points.

Reposted, because I apparently messed up and deleted a bunch of stuff.
