Yesterday saw the 3rd annual “Modern Gordon Castle Highland Games”. I understand from the ringside commentary yesterday that the Games used to be a very big event Moray social and sporting occasion but it had lapsed for many years. The Spey Fishery Board/Foundation had a stand at the show where we were able to showcase some of the projects that we have been involved with. There was a big crowd at the games and our stall was very busy with the day passing quickly.
Late afternoon there was a parade of Gordon Setter dogs which was lovely to see back at their ancestral home.
Once things quietened down I was able to sneak away to have a go in the casting competition. Possibly it was due to some good fortune with a favourable tail wind but I won the competition with a cast of 123ft. It turns out that the person with the longest cast prior to that point had been Angus Gordon Lennox, Laird of the Castle……oooops!
