Sports Day – May 17th, 2021

This event brought back childhood memories of the school fête as a motley bunch of “athletes” demonstrated that they still have what it takes to strive for glory under a blazing sun.  What they lacked in coordination they made up for with enthusiasm and a “never say die” attitude that roused the raucous crowd to a crescendo at the culmination of each heat.  A few achieved glory and went home with prizes, while those who were disappointed this year vowed to return for a rematch next year.

Highland Games – April 24th, 2021

This annual outdoor event was just what we needed as we emerge cautiously from the pandemic. What a treat to see those happy smiles again after a year hidden behind face masks!

The weather was kind and over 60 members and guests enjoyed the event in warm sunshine with a cooling breeze. The pipes and drums of the Sounds of Scotland set the tone with their rousing performance of traditional tunes, before the athletes, fueled on delicious Mission BBQ lunches, took to the field to compete in the events. Cabers were tossed, sheaves were heaved, and stones were putt, all with fierce but polite rivalry without turning into a “Braveheart in The Villages” skirmish.

Eventually prizes were awarded. The winners know who they are. The rest of us were happy just to have been there. Enjoy these photos …
