Chisholm, MacPhee win at Crieff

Crieff, Scotland – August 22, 2004 – A warm and mostly sunny day pleased the 25-or-so competitors at the annual Crieff Highland Games. Jori Chisholm of Seattle and Donald MacPhee of Alexandria, Scotland, took the first prizes. This is to be the last Crieff games on the existing park, which has hosted the event for decades. A “big box” retail complex is scheduled to be built. Banners hanging from nearby houses protested the construction.
