Clan Sinclair and Clan Gunn will have "Honored Clan" status at this year's 
New Hampshire Highland Games.  The presence of The Right-Honorable Malcolm 
Sinclair, Earl of Caithness, Hereditary Chief of Clan Sinclair will be 
recognized.  In addition, Prince Henry and his companions are expected to be

in attendance (through impersonation)!  Last year the attendance at the NH 
Highland Games was 42,000.  Among the scheduled events are the Tattoo,
Pipe Bands, Contests for harp, fiddle and Highland dancing, demonstrations, 
seminars, games, Tartan Ball, and clan tents.

In Westford, MA, there will be a banquet, seminars, clan meeting, and a 
reception.  Special exhibitions are planned at the Library  to commemorate
600th Anniversary.  Information gathered about the "Westford Knight" will be

available for browsing and copying.   Also, while at the library, one can
the "Boat Stone" (a carving on a stone thought to have been carved at the
time as the Westford Knight.  It resembles a sailing ship). The schools in 
Westford will be doing special projects about the Sinclair Voyage to get the

students involved. The Westford Museum will be featuring special lectures
