Start Day Kilted Mile (Multi-Day Event)
The Kilted Mile is an Edinboro University tradition that originated as part of the first Highland Games and Scottish Festival in 1993. The Kilted Mile – in all its tartan glory – keeps our traditions alive at Homecoming 2020. From weekend warriors to casual runners to families and kids of all ages, everyone is welcome to participate.

This year's race will take place ANYWHERE between Wednesday, Sept. 30, and Sunday, Oct. 4. Participants will track their own times. Race results must be sent in by Monday, Oct. 5, at noon. The traditional Kilted Mile course (Darrow road to Meadville Street ending at the crosswalk between Flip and the Hotel) will be set up Wednesday through Sunday, but racers can participate at any location. After racers have registered, they will receive an email with more information about submitting their race times.

6:00 PM - 9:00 PM Photography of Rob Machi - Closing Reception
Robert A. Machi has been taking photographs since he was a child. His first experience with the world of photography was shooting inexpensive Kodak single-use film cameras of the 1980s.

Rob’s main asset is his out-going personality. A humorous family story is that Rob didn’t speak until he was four, and ever since, no one has been able to keep him quiet. Because of this, the faculty at School of the Holy Childhood dubbed him the “Mayor.”

As an adult, Rob’s major interests are media-related: the wonder and magic of live-action and animated cinema, video gaming and still photography. Incidentally, Rob’s first word was not mommy or daddy, it was “light.”

A decade ago, Rob’s interest in photography took a serious turn when his father gave him a digital Canon PowerShot A650. After a few formal lessons and inspired by the natural world, Rob began to take photographs of nature’s many moods. He soon graduated to a Sony CyberShot DSC-H200, then recently a Sony RX100-IV.

Edinboro is Rob’s fifth professional exhibition. Last winter, two of Rob’s photographs were accepted in a juried exhibition at the George Eastman Museum, the oldest American museum dedicated to photography.

All of the photographs in the Edinboro exhibition were taken with the Sony cameras and printed on Kodak paper at Scott’s Photo by Rowe in Rochester, NY.
