A sign of a successful event is the anticipation of those involved for the next opportunity to hold it again.
That's how members of the Golden Triangle Celts Clan felt about the first-ever Central Mississippi Scottish Heritage Games that was hosted in Starkville last weekend.
Despite a bit of inclement weather on Saturday morning, Hal Bullock, one of the Gray Beards or elder advisors, said the group could not have asked for a better time.
“We had really successful games,” Bullock said. “The spectators that came out seemed to enjoy the games and we had quite a few first timers participate. We are actually sending some of those to compete in the games in Hattiesburg in April. Obviously we had some weather issues, but it was not enough to dampen our spirits and we kept on through it.”
