Cobourg Cancels Games

The decades-old Cobourg Highland Games has decided to cancel its 2000 event due to “financial restructuring.” Held in the town of Cobourg each July, the competition had established itself as a small but popular event for the eastern Ontario region.

In years past, however, Cobourg Games has been the victim of bad weather, with extremely heavy rain in 1998 and threatening skies in 1999.

The Cobourg Games committee has indicated that it plans to discuss restarting the contest in early 2001.
