We are in the final days of fun fundraising for Seek The Peak 2011. The team concept seems to be working well allowing folks to help others achieve higher levels of donations than they probably would have alone.

I am the Team Captain of the Kilted Clan team. 6 of the 8 members hike in kilts - and I am not one of them. The leader of the Kilted Clan does not wear a kilt? Folks have thought this was just not right.

So, the Kilted Challenge is in its last few days to get me into a kilt. If my fundraising total or the team's total gets a "significant donation" (and I am the only judge of what is significant), I will go to the Awards Dinner on STP day wearing a kilt. Yes, I will get a kilt and wear it that night. No one will know whether I am kilted when I arrive as I plan on wearing a long coat hiding the shorts I am wearing - or will there be a kilt under the coat? That will only be revealed at the dinner.

The Observatory needs our support more than ever. Help the Obs reach it's 2011 STP goal - and our team's goal - and those who want to see me in a kilt (for some reason). Donate to http://s.seekthepeak.org/brad

The team's overall results can be seen at http://s.seekthepeak.org/kiltedclan.

Donate as much as you can since as a Trustee I do not qualify for the prizes and drawings. So, your massive donations will not put me at a different achievement level. But, they will help the Observatory which is what STP is all about - and having fun doing it.

Get me in a kilt - NOW.

Three reasons we want to see Brad in a kilt. #1 Reason: Because it means a substantial sum was raised for the Obs! #2 reason: Because he said, "Never!" #3 Reason: Because the captain of the Kilted Clan can't be kilt-less. It's just not right!

Yes, I said never. But, if we can pull off #1 objective, then it is for a good cause.

I have had plenty of people volunteer to let me borrow a kilt. So, if the urge arises, I could be kilted. Just not sure yet. I will have to stay the achievements of the team and make a decision on Saturday just before the dinner.

I'm with you Brad. I have my kilt but haven't taken the tags off yet. Anxious to hear what Scot has to say tomorrow...

The official report on the Kilted Challenge is that it was successful. Our 8 team members were typically bringing in around $6,500 for STP in prior years. But, the team spirit and the Challenge raised the team to $10,845. This fantastic achievement was enough to get both Mark and Brad into kilts for the after hiker dinner party. Yes, there are pictures.
