Event Details

New Games Alert!

Mark your calanders!  We are excited to present the 1st Annual Campbell River Highland Gathering! I would like to invite you to come and compete in our 1st games ever. Our gathering will take place at Nunns Creek Park in Campbell River on Vancouver Island from August 10-12th. The gathering will be attached to a long-running Salmon Festival and logger sports competition. I am excited to be able to host an Open Men’s and Open Women’s class as well as Novice, Amateur Men's and Women's, Master's Men's, Master's women's and Strength Challenge only classes.

Friday August 10th will be a novice clinic and competition and possibly a Sheaf Challenge Event with prize money in the evening. Saturday August 11th will start off in the morning with Master’s classes finishing up by mid-day. The open classes will take the field starting around 12:30. We will be doing a full competition with all 9 events. The competition may run into later afternoon. There will be a salmon dinner that evening and another challenge event..Keg for height with prize money. Sunday August 12th will be an exciting day of Amateur classes and strength challenge events. I still haven’t decided which events we will be running but some possibilities will be a tug-of-war contest against the loggers, Challenge caber, Loggers(farmers) walk, Keg for distance, pole push contest and log press. All challenge events will have prize money and I hope that all competitors will stick around for at least a few of them. It should be a lot of fun and we are trying to convince the board to give me a bigger budget next year!

 The games hotel is the Heritage River Inn.  The newest hotel with the most to offer is The Comfort Inn Campbell River and a cheaper option would be the Mae Mae Motel. There will also be free camping at the games which could be a lot fun.  Tickets include entry to event on the day of your competition only, lunch and competition t-shirt.  All family members and anyone not competing that day will have to pay a gate fee of $5 CAN. If a class is full please contatct me so I can see if there is room.
