Reserve Your Place at the 2013 U.S. National Mòd!

The registration and rules packet for the 2013 U.S. National Mòd is now available. The packet, which may be downloaded in PDF format here, contains all the rules and registration materials you need to compete in any of the competitions at the Mòd Sept. 20-22 or via the Distance Learning Competition (formerly called “the mail-in Mòd”).

Mod Banner 3The packet also includes the forms needed to reserve a room at the Antiochian Village from Friday, Sept. 20, through Sunday, Sept. 22. The Antiochian Village for years has been home to the Mòd during the Ligonier Highland Games. The Mòd opens Friday, Sept. 20, with dinner, poetry and storytelling competitions at the Antiochian Village.

Lodging at the Antiochian Village, only about 20 minutes from the Ligonier Highland Games and downtown Ligonier, includes dinner Friday, breakfast Saturday and breakfast and lunch Sunday. The registration packet also includes a reservation form for  the Mòd Banquet and Cèilidh Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Ligonier Tavern.

The 26th annual U.S. National Mòd welcomes back adjudicator Catrìona Nic Iòmhair Parsons, one of the founders of the Mòd and our original adjudicator. Catrìona has adjudicated our competitions 10 times since 1988. We will also welome Scotland’s 2012 Royal National Mòd Gold Medal Winners Calum Mac Leòid and Eilidh Davies!

Tha sinn an dòchas gum bi sibh còmhla ruinn am bliadhna ann an Ligonier. Thigibh dhachaigh dhan Mhòid! We hope you’ll join us this year. Come home to the Mòd!
