The following weekend Stirling Highland Games and Crieff Highland Gathering take place on Sat 19th & 20th August respectively. I'm quite sure many competitors will have been waiting to enter these events at Perth Games on Sunday, which is the closing date for both. With Perth now cancelled competitors should ensure they have their entries forwarded to the respective handicappers by the closing date for entries.
