Let the games begin!

Yesterday marked the start of the Portland Highland Games!

In the afternoon, they opened with a new "Pre-Games" series of  fun athletic events, and in the evening was the annual Professional Piobaireachd Competition.

Although I didn't get a chance to try out the Pre-Games this time around, I did get to attend the piobaireachd competition, and oh lord! There was some amazing playing to be heard!

If you were also one of the lucky ones that attended the competition, you won't be surprised to hear that the:

  • Winner (Piobaireachd):  Jori Chisholm (who was absolutely brilliant tonight!)
  • Winner (2/4 March): Alaister Lee
 
Check out our Picasa Web Album for some photos from last night's event.  I'm afraid that I too busy enjoying the music, so I didn't take as many photos as I usually do.

Be sure to join us for a full day of field and piping and drumming events at Mt. Hood Community College!  Gates open at 8:00 AM.

Put on your sunscreen, and we'll see you there!
