2005 Glengarry Highland Games


A big Mr. Greg Hadley heaves a telephone pole sized caber at last weekend's Glengarry Highland Games in Maxville, Ontario. Ask any Scot what he wears beneath his kilt and he'll surely tell you - shoes and socks.

I left my kilt at home this weekend in favour of cooler cotton shorts. I may consider wearing it again next year when I lose a couple of inches around the waist. Dang thing lacks pockets you know, and the sporran can only hold so much.

Here are the events in which the competitors participated:
Stone (20Lbs.)
Weight for Distance (56Lbs.)
Weight for Distance (28Lbs.)
Hammer Throw (22Lbs.)
Hammer Throw (16Lbs.)
Weight for Height (56Lbs.)
Sheaf Toss (16Lbs.)
Caber (Regulation)
Challenge Caber (To qualify for this event, the competitor must have successfully turned the regulation caber.)

Glad to see a glimpse. I considered going but still haven't made it out.
