I haven’t remarked much on our adventure last Saturday. We went to the Oklahoma Scottish Games. Unfortunately we saw very little of the games, because after we looked around a bit and got to the game area the kids were very tired.
I have to say; I really think the bagpipes are very cool! The music was incredible. If you have never heard a large drum and pipe group in person before you are missing out. I got some photos. Mainly I got a lot of pipe and kilts, some Clydesdale horses, hawks and a few events.
The events you will see are the distance for weight, the sheaf toss and the women’s amateur caber toss. The caber that woman is holding was 10 ½ feet tall and 35 lbs (she was about my size, except way more muscular). That is like stretching Victoria until she is 10 ½ feet, picking her up, running and tossing her end over end. It was impressive to see. Men’s cabers start at 90 lbs.
We will probably go back next year, but I think we’ll leave the kids at home so we can see more for what we paid to get in.
