When you start a local newspaper you are reminded of all the events and people that you knew from long ago.
Today was the Blackford Highland Games, an event I had not attended in a long time. What a year to return. With records being broken in two separate events and other fiercely fought contests seeing silverware changing hands, it was a great day for everyone involved.
The Official Highland Games Association Results will be available in our print edition coming out next week.
Until then as you can see, I met a “weel kent” local whom I had not seen in quite some time along with many more.
There are not many events that can claim to be National and Local in the same breath, Blackford Highland Games is one of them and that is something of which the community of Blackford can be proud.
