Inveraray Highland Games

To the best at throwing the
sledgehammer - a large silver brooch.
To the next best - a set of patent
leather sword belts

Extract from a poster written in 1826
Today I think that the prizes are contained in small brown envelopes and are of the folding paper kind…shame really. We did have a weather eye tuned to the heavy events but mostly spent the day watching Toby competing in the 11-15s track and field events. He represented Claonairigh well, even valiantly taking part against all comers in the “locals” events. The girls were in the wee races…over in the flash of an eye as sweeties are held out to encourage participation.
