Games Cancelled for 16th of June Due to Weather

Friday, June 15th, 2012

The Newburgh Games Committee are very disappointed to have to cancel the Highland Games, due to be held on the 16th of June. Yet again the weather has been against us with wind, rain and low temperatures forecast. The volume of rain that’s fallen over the past 24 hours is also important as the games park is now very wet indeed, which could make it unsafe for competitors and certainly uncomfortable for spectators.

There will be a committee meeting soon to discuss options for the 2012 Highland Games so please check this website again for further information just in case we do manage to schedule a new date for this event.

Getting ready for the games on 16th June

Everything is almost ready for this year’s Newburgh Highland Games. Anyone walking near ‘Robbie’s Park’ will see the preparations underway, to set the field up ready for Saturday. Please visit the updated contacts page for the correct phone numbers if you have any enquiries to make. The weather forecast is not great for Saturday but lets hope the day is good enough for the games to go ahead this year.
