Dear Athletes:

The time is upon us for another great heavy athletics competition at the San Antonio Highland Games which will be held at the Helotes Fairgrounds. Highland Games World Champion James Parman is the Head Judge and Announcer.

You are responsible for your own lunch as the games will provide water and Gatorade. I will have a couple of tents and plenty of chairs set up for the athletes but you are more than welcome to set up a tent for yourself and family. Feel free to bring in a cooler if you want. DO NOT drive onto the fairgrounds to drop your stuff off. Come in and use my golf cart to go out to your car and pick it up.

1. All Amateur A, B,and Master's Class athletes MUST wear a KILT and KILT HOSE. You will receive a T shirt with your entry and will be required to wear it on the field.

2. All Decisions of the Judges and Athletic Director are final. NASGA/SHA rules will be used for judging.

3. Athletes will be expected to conduct themselves in a professional and courteous manner, maintaining a friendly and respectful attitude toward the public, officials and other competitors.

Please complete the entry form and waiver and get it back to me by March 23, 2018 so I can have an accurate t-shirt count. Any entry received after the deadline will have a $10 addition to the fee IF approved by the AD.
