Please make checks payable to "The Mother Lode Games". For all other information concerning our Games, please go to our webpage, and select the appropriate section. Clan and Family representatives are encouraged to invite their Chiefs/Chieftains/Heads of Families to attend. Once they are here, they will be accorded all the honors and privileges befitting their historical status. We will appreciate being notified as early as possible of their impending visit so that we may make appropriate preparations, such as including their photos and/or their biographies in our souvenir program and issuing complimentary passes to the various functions and events. Regrettably, we are unable to provide them with accommodations or travel expenses.

Yours Aye,
