Led by Francis Brebner and David Webster, there will be an IHGF Highland Games clinic in Orange County, California on Sunday, September 11, with the 2011 Orange County Rolling Thunder® Championships to follow.
David Webster, OBE is a world renown Highland Games and strength world historian, and he will be giving a hour-long seminar on the history of Highland Games and strongman.
“David is uniquely qualified to speak on this subject and this is a prime chance for any Highland games athlete to come be part of the clinic and hear about stories of the past Highland games legends, stones of strength and strongman and also to answer any questions you ever wanted to know in the strength world,” Francis Brebner told IronMind.
Brebner—whose credits in the Highland Games include being a 7-time world champion in the caber, and is also one of the three men to originally lift the famed Inver Stone from the ground to arms’ length overhead—will lead a clinic on throwing technique for the Highland Games, so here is your chance to learn from one of the sport’s top practitioners.
“This clinic is open to all categories, and novice athletes would benefit greatly from it,” Brebner said.
“The clinic will start at 9am sharp and will be followed by the David Webster seminar at 2 p.m. and will wrap up with the 2010 Orange County Rolling Thunder Championships at 3:30 p.m., which is also is open to the public. Prizes will be awarded,” said Brebner.
For anyone wishing to attend the clinic please contact West Imboden, noting "Highland Games Clinic" in the subject line.
