This year at the Sitka Seafood Festival on August 11th there will be Scottish Highland/Island Games Heavy Throwing Competition held at the Sheldon Jackson parade field from 3:00-9:00PM. The competition will consist of the following events.

Wearing of a Kilt during competition is required - It is a Scottish event after all! Loaners may be available

Each competitor is awarded points correlating to the place they rank in each of the 8 events. The competitor with the least amount of points at the end of all 8 events is the winner of the competition and will win a trophy

Practices will be held throughout the summer for those interested in competing. Attending a practice is highly encouraged due to the danger of some of the events.

Rules for the events can be found here.

A waiver is required for participation in the August Competition and an entry fee to pay for T-shirt, costs and insurance will be required.

Anyone interested in competing and/or would like to attend practice should contact James Gibson at

Hope to hear from you!
