Old Home Day Game

Monday September 2, 2019

Charlton, MA

I will have spots for available for 30 athletes. I’m planning to have 3 flights of athletes and will massage the number to insure that. I retain the discretion to change that and anything. #livingtheADlife

If you register after the limit has been reached, you will be placed on a waiting list. When full or by August 15, I will post a list of the people who have registered and available spots, if any.

To register you will need to send me just an EMAIL not a message on Messenger, not a post or comment on the event page, not a text - an EMAIL to rsims@charter.net. You will tell me your full name, what division you are registering for and if you have ever competed before. I’m also planning on making a pamphlet to hand out to the crowd. So include a few personal bites including: Age, profession(s), years throwing, athletic background, and any special talents. I also have bib numbers for us to wear and they will be linked to the information in the pamphlet.

Entry fee: To cover costs of prizes and shirts, I’m setting an entrance fee at $25. I have set up a Venmo account or you can mail me a check. When you register, I will reply with the Venmo and mailing information.

Guidelines:

1. If you can’t commit to competing in every event (both stones, both weights, both hammers, WOB, Caber and Sheaf (maybe) then please DON’T REGISTER.

2. If you can’t commit to being at the games from the first throw to the last throw (not just your first and last throw) DON’T REGISTER.

3. If you are unsure if you will be able to get the day off from work DON’T REGISTER.

4. DO REGISTER if you want to be a positive active member of the highland games community in New England i.e. someone who helps with set up and tear down, someone who respects the rules of competition and the judges and volunteers working, someone who is open to helping to make sure all athletes are safe and having a great time.

5. Trash in, trash out. I generally police the area when we are all done, so please be a human being about this. The folks at Old Home Day are very gracious to host us. Don’t give them a reason not to have us back.

6. Watch your language. This is a family event, despite how piss poor you may have just performed, keep your derogatory words inside you head and away from your mouth.
