The Latest from the Chief...

With another year done it is time for some summertime reading. You will better understand the times and your persona. Persue your interests to improve our performance, be it wood working, textile arts, sewing, dance, music. or arms.

Please spread the word to your regular clan correspondents you phone or email. Facebook is useful for the casual social contact, however it is an insecure adjunct which will not have non-public information, especially what I have to pass on to you from the company. is for the general public.

If you have any questions please email me, and CC Lonny, chief of staff, especially for anything that has a deadline.

Yours aye, Steven

Notes From Tournaig

The Chief has told everyone they need a Registered Personal Mark to retrieve their goods. Read the Marks article, as well as the rest of the Basic Guide, which has information you need. Look at the Mark Registry to design your unique personal mark, and submit it (100pixels x 100pixels with name and persona name) by email to Odo for approval and inclusion in the Registry, or get a reply why there may be a problem (like someone else's?). If you learn the marks, you could return goods directly to the owner. Found goods go to Odo, so they can be retrieved, under orders of the Chief. Odo reviews proposed marks to make sure they are unique and will work. Marked goods can be retrieved for the fee. Unclaimed goods will go to auction. And do remember, Unmarked goods are the Chief's goods. Mark everything!

Please give feedback about, and email me notice of any problems on the web site. What I don't see or know about doesn't get fixed.

The MacColin Basic Guide has information you are required to know as well as much of the basic information aggregated in the past 30+ years.

The 'Clan App' covers more than the address for the Seannachie so one is needed for each member, including kids.
It covers contact information (we need to add more for this), legal, and medical information (we take care of our own and pay attention to diets), including date of birth for each, which allows the chief to answer questions like "How many kids/minors/adults do you have?" from Faire, and updating for Pikemitsfa (under age is no dues, but insurance is required for every member).

ID Project needs a clear, small 150x150 pixel picture of each face, kids included just like apps, that will read when printed by a b&w printer so we have a reference. It helps in learning 16th & 21st century names and returning goods. Send approriate pictures with 16th & 21st century names directly to Odo. You can also get marks approved, registered, and published. That also means you can pick a picture you like, instead of me making do with what I can, including clowning.
You know how to do an address update, and this way we are a current as possible.
Timeline, and Warrants are at a standstill.

We have links to most of our resources, Living History and general.

The Outline of Links of the sets of links will help with where to look and link to them.
In the Outline use the Find function (most browsers use ctl-F) and look for a related term, like "lyric" which will also find lyrics, and once you are in the area, follow the outline tree up. REF07 I 4 vii d 2 is the outline location, so click the address, and scroll to I (Scot) 4 (Social graces) vii (music) d (other) 2 (Lyrics) and start doing the old right-click open in other window on each one that looks likely. Some links are old (these are the most useful sites I have found in the past years, over 4000 links, and some die every month) or slow, or are limited traffic. Try surfing these links, there is more stuff related to our interests in these than you can read in a year. And if you find another good one, let me know, and it will be added for the rest of us to use.  

          If You would like something in the site, tell me! More information about the site and policies is available.

Clan MacColin Music (midi)
Port na MacColin was written for the clan by Simon Spalding on commission by the Chief. As... .mid (5KB), .wav (985KB), .ogg (1073KB), .MP3 (1429KB) Amazing Grace is our traditional song at the end of the day. The tune for the Clan Fight Song is here.
Music also enters into our humor. Some of our musicians (the "Swollen Minstrels") wrote and performed a parody, "Knocking on Gillans Door", as well as the rest of a CD. KNOCKEN.MP3 (5MB) Cailleach is mostly MacColin with great traditional music.
