Stone Mountain Highland Games this weekend

Each year, during the third weekend in October, Scots gather in the meadow at Stone Mountain Park. For 37 years the Stone Mountain Highland Games have not only provided cool athletic competition, but also a great musical performances and social interactions.

I have been to a few of the events over the years and enjoyed watching athletic events like the Caber Toss (this is throwing a telephone pole, kids…), the Hammer Throw and the Sheaf Toss.

I’m also a sucker for bagpipe music.

Hit up the Stone Mountain Highland Games website for more info. Events start Friday evening and continue through Sunday. There IS an additional charge to get into the meadow, aside from the park’s entry fee.


SRBC Car Show, May 16th…

Showers flirted with the event, with a few passing through, but there were some pretty cool rides that dodged the drops to make the event.

Smoke Rise Baptist Church holds this event on the first Saturday in May each year.  Here is the event website.

Below is a slide show with all of the cars that showed up for the event.  The Pastor’s Choice went to the ’65 Mustang Convertible, while the Best In Show went to the Red Alfa Romeo Convertible.
