Clan Registration


Below, you can reserve a clan tent space where, you can educate the public about who you are, and what your clan history has encompassed. Please keep your size request reasonable; we try to allow you whatever size you need but appreciate your moderation!

We invite all Scottish organizations and Clans to participate in our Clan area, but we must hear from you not later than May 15 in order to list your organization’s name and ad in the program.

CLAN TENTS: We have standardized our clan space areas; $40.00 per 12 x 12 space, and includes 4 tickets to the Games.

Or, a 24 x 12 space, subject to availability, is $70 and includes, and includes 8 Games tickets. If your clan required a 24 x 24 area, the cost is $140.00, and is also subject to availability.

Optional ways to further your Clan’s involvement:

  • Application for clan advertisement in our Official Program–SPACE IS LIMITED, SO AD SPACE GOES TO FIRST RECEIVED. Visitors keep them for the crucial information they contain and as mementos; with this they will have your clan name and a contact point for the future. The Publications Director has the art for all clan crests, and will place the contact information you provide. Please see ad information at the bottom of this page. Also: participating clan organizations will be listed on the website, all year long!


  • Take an active role in the competitive side of our Games. There will be many individuals and bands. This translates into a lot of medals and trophies to be distributed. If you would like to congratulate the competitors for their hard work and excellence, please consider donating the funds which will go toward the purchase a set of medals and/or a trophy.


  • Participate in our Kirkin’ of the Tartan on the Main Stage at 9:15 a.m. on Sunday, June 23. Please bring your tartan and join our Clans Gathering. Details will follow.


  • Take part in the Parade of the Clans during our Grand Parade on the ballfield between the clans area and vendors on June 22 and 23 at 12 noon. We will begin lining up at 11:30 a.m. with Clan banners, tartans, Clan members, kids and all! Please note: as we have done in past years, we would like to announce well-known products and people associated with your clan (such as Sinclair Paint, Graham crackers, Douglas MacArthur or Neil Armstrong), so there is a place on the application form for this information. Please keep the information short, to one or two things about your clan.

See below for more details.

The field will be open for you to set up your booth on Friday, June 21 after 12:00 noon until 6:00 p.m., and as early as 7:00 to 8:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. Security will be provided overnight for those who set up on Friday. If you need to rent equipment, please see our rates below. There is no fee for selling clan items, but sales are restricted to clans-related shirts and caps.

Brengle Terrace is a lovely park, and the City of Vista is most excited to again welcome the San Diego Games. They will handle the parking (which will cost $5 per car (new price), $12 for RVs); a clans lot, just above the clans area, will be open to cars with Clans Parking Passes (emailed to you the week before the games), on a first-come, first-served basis until 8:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, at which time it will be opened to the public. We hope to have handicapped parking for clan representatives with handicapped license plates. There will also be a shuttle bus from the Vista High School parking lot to the Games. The rules of the park prohibit dogs who are not certified service animals (the sheepdog trial dogs are the only exception), and we ask that you please leave your pets home. There is also space for RV overnight parking (no hookups) at the eastern end of the park by the senior center, for which there is a $10 charge per night.

We will be offering alcoholic beverages in several enclosed areas; all alcohol must be bought and consumed within these areas and none may be brought onto the field (this is San Diego County law). Coolers will be searched, so we hope you take this forewarning and not cause yourself inconvenience at the gate. Also, glass containers are not allowed; please pack everything in plasticware and bring your food and drink in non-glass containers.


SDSHG takes pride in the fine quality medals and trophies we issue; they are cherished by all our competitors. A medal set consists of three medals (1st, 2nd, and 3rd); sponsorship costs $20.00. Trophy sponsorships are $30.00. If you wish your trophy to go to a certain event, indicate which event on the order form. This is only a portion of the actual cost of the trophies and medals; you help the SDSHG as well as promote your clan.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Director of Clan Registrations, Susan Abernethy at, or call  (858) 576-8293.

Before you leave at the end of the Games you will need to check the rental items back in with the Grounds Director and sign off when they are tagged for pick up. This will ensure your rental order is delivered and returned in full so you will not incur replacement charges for any unaccounted items.
