A-right Lads and Lassies! It’s time for the clans to gather and determine whose castle is the ruler of the land! Ya’ clan is invited to the Highland Games of the Mount Cammerer District of BSA. We wish ya’ luck as we celebrate our Scottish heritage and participate in the games.
The challenges include: the Caber Toss, the Braemer Stone Put, the Battle Hammer Toss, the Farmer’s Walk, the Battle Ax Throw, the Kilt Run, a Tug-O-War (non-competition, braggin’ rights only), and the Clanmaster’s (Scoutmaster’s) Challenge (non-competition, braggin’ rights only).
Plan on wearin’ ya’ tartan (kilts or plaids) and displaying ya’ clan flags. There will be judging of the clan flags and ya’ clan battle cry as well.
Ribbons will be presented for first, second and third place patrol event winners and the overall trophy will be presented to the winning clan (Troop) to be held and adorned until the next time we gather.
To level the playin’ field on the day of the games, we will be using US Junior Olympic age brackets for participation where appropriate. See the leader’s guide for an explanation of how those age brackets are implemented for each event.
In the interim, be sure and participate in our upcoming district roundtable events to keep informed regarding further planning for the games.
