What and When

Events are a bit like the weather. Although you can predict, you can’t be certain! So we have tried our best to outline the times that events will happen, but we hope that you understand that this schedule is subject to the vagaries of competitor numbers, as well as Highland time! On the day, please listen to events being called by the Announcer to make sure you see/enter the events you are interested in!
