Ceud Mìle Fàilte!

Literally translated, ceud mìle fàilte means "one hundred thousand welcomes" in Scots Gaelic. It is often more than just a greeting, it is a symbol of Celtic hospitality. It means you are welcome, a hundred thousand times, whoever you are, wherever you're from. The Fresno Scottish Society would like to extend this same hospitality to our visitors. Welcome!



Thank you for attending our 46th Annual Scottish Highland Gathering and Games. Your participation in the Central Valley’s premier Scottish Games made this year’s event a huge success. Without your continued participation we could not have maintained our Games for these 46 years!

On behalf of the Scottish Society of Central California, I also want to thank the athletes and judges, pipe bands, Celtic Motion, Tempest and Celtic Alchemy, Mary Queen of Scots, Company of the Gauntlet and Rose, sheep herders, Valley British Auto Club, the many food and retail vendors, and all the Scottish Clans for their participation.

Finally, a big ‘thank you’ to the Selma High School Marine Corps JROTC Cadets, and the volunteers, members and officers of the Scottish Society of Central California.

I hope to see you at next year’s Games! Haste Ye Back!


Roger Wilson

Chief, Scottish Society of Central California
