I just learned a few weeks ago that the Loon Mountain Highland Games held at Loon Mountain in Lincoln NH will be the last such games held there.
The games have been played at this site for 28 years and is the most beautiful and spectacular site. Nestled among towering moutains, lakes, stream and forests, it truly gives one the feeling of Scotland. There is nothing like hearing close to 1000 bagpipers come Marching down a mountain with the bagpipe sounds echoing off the mountain from afar.
Because of a combination of the Winston Cup & Foilage season it was decided that the games will be moved to the Hopkinton Fair ground in NH. True there is potential that the games could grow even more at this new site with the possible addition of the World Champion Heavy Weight events in the future, but it will never be the same for people that have fallen in love with the Game at Loon.
The Loon games attract close to 50,000 people over the 3 day event - - including all of the most famous musicians, dancers, athelets. I for one will be re-arranging my schedule to make it for this one last time before they move.
