Today Team Tartan sailed a virtual Leukemia Cup one week early since we’ll be scattered to the winds during the actual race next week. The good news is that we won the race! Sadly, we also came in last. We’ve been raising money for the Leukemia Cup for nine years. This year, with your help, […]

Eilean Donan Castle: Ancestral Home of McGraw/McCrae

Winter Solstice Fire 2015


It all started out with champagne, celebrating Team Tartan’s 2015 Leukemia Cup accomplishment with a crop of Timex watches. (About which this.) Then it got dark, the keg was tapped, the cheesy xmas music was put on infinite repeat in the barn, burn barrels were lit, and off we went! Early birds got to see […]
