    Canada WINS! Go Team Canada! Oh, C a n a d a...

    Yesterday at the Michigan renaissance festival (http://www.michrenfest.com/ ) was the 3rd annual Canada vs. USA Highland Athletics Challenge. It's a 'demo' games with 6 events, 56# weight over bar, 56# weight for distance, Braemar stone, open stone and caber. It is held during the "Highland Fling" weekend of the fesitival.

    And this year Team Canada won!

    Why am I, an athlete from Detroit so proud of this win? Because I was... ahem..."drafted" to be on Team Canada for this event.

    Great time--great people--big fun. If your in the area, please come out and support the festival, which runs until October 3rd. Please also remember to support amature Highland Athletics whenever you can. We promise to do our best for you, all the time.

    Likely they were confused that you live north of the Can/US border.
