Red Deer & Ellerslie Games Info - 2017

Red Deer Info

The competition will be held at Westerner Park (http://westernerpark.ca/events/428-highland-games). We will be throwing in the northwest portion of the field inside the race track. I'll put the site map from their website up on the Facebook page for reference, or you can track it down yourself through their website.

There will be a meeting to review the rules and go over safety for all new throwers between 8-9am. THIS IS MANDATORY for all new throwers. If you don't attend, I won't let you throw. There are a lot of first time throwers and I want everyone to be able to enjoy their day and go home safely. One of the ways we all do this is by being aware of the dangers that exist on the field and knowing how to mitigate them. Please be at this meeting!

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your start time to check in and warm up. This means the Open, Women, Ams and Youth class competitors should be on the field by 9am and Masters by 11:30. Your name is with the volunteers at the gate. If you have family or significant others traveling with you, they will have to pay the entrance fee. There will be a tent set up for the athletes and we will be providing water and some gatorade. The tent and refreshments are for the competitors only, all other individuals will have to stay outside of the throwing area.

We have close to 30 athletes throwing in Red Deer so remember when you're on the field to keep your eyes up and be aware of who's throwing. We're here to entertain the crowd and have a great day of throwing. Please interact with them! I realize you have paid to compete but the spectators have paid to come watch you throw things that most of them would never think to! Have fun out there and the crowd will too.

All competitors must wear a kilt while throwing. Safety is of the utmost importance. Those deemed unsafe by the judge will not be permitted to compete in the event.  If you are just learning, this is understandable and we have asked newcomers (in few and far between situations) to sit off for certain events but to rejoin in the next event.  Those showing disregard for safety will be disqualified and asked to leave.

Ellerslie Info

The competition will be held at the Edmonton Scottish Society (https://sites.google.com/view/edmontonscottishsociety/home) located at 3105 101 Street SW. We will be throwing in the northwest soccer field just as you pass through the main gate.

There will be a meeting to review the rules and go over safety for all new throwers between 9-9:30am. THIS IS MANDATORY for all new throwers. If you don't attend, I won't let you throw. There are a lot of first time throwers and I want everyone to be able to enjoy their day and go home safely. One of the ways we all do this is by being aware of the dangers that exist on the field and knowing how to mitigate them. Please be at this meeting! If you attended the meeting in Red Deer, you don't need to attend this one.

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your start time to check in and warm up. This means all competitors should be on the field by 9:30am. Tell the volunteers at the gate that you are participating in the Heavy Events competition. If you have family or significant others traveling with you, they will have to pay the entrance fee. There will be a tent set up for the athletes and we will be providing water and some gatorade. The tent and refreshments are for the competitors only, all other individuals will have to stay outside of the throwing area.

As noted for the Red Deer information, there are going to be a lot of people on the field, so please be aware of who is throwing and where you are in relation to them. You must wear a kilt to compete. Those showing disregard for safety will be disqualified and asked to leave.

General Info

If you have any questions for me, please contact me via the heavy events email and I will reply as soon as I can!
