"It's exciting," said Athletic Director Steve Conway, as he looks forward to this year's Highland Games Heavy Events World Championships, which are set for Pleasanton, California over Labor Day weekend.

Explaining the selection process, Conway told IronMind®, "The plan is to take the top five US throwers off the NASGA board on July 1 and then add five international guys. That would no doubt include at least one Canadian, someone from New Zealand or Australia, and, of course, Scotland. David Webster is helping with the selection."
With its huge crowds and something-for-everyone schedule of events, Pleasanton is the place to be this Labor Day, so mark your calendar and plan to be there.
