Perth Kilt Run weekend is a family affair with something for all ages and interests. If baking is your schtick, why not put your skills to the test and enter the 2015 baking competition - this year, featuring the ever popular and truly Scottish oatmeal cookie?
Again this year there are two categories of bakers - "kids" (under 16) and "adults" (16 or older). There are cash prizes, souvenir aprons and flashy ribbons to be won, in addition to bragging rights. The panel of judges will evaluate the entries based on appearance, flavour, texture and “Scotts appeal”.
Are you up for the challenge? Entry forms and instructions are available from The Running Goat (at 74 Foster St., Perth, Ontario) or download it from here. Baking entries (at least 3 cookies, more if you want to feed the runners) must be dropped off at Stewart Park between 11 am and 1 pm on Saturday June 20th. Winners will be announced at 4 pm, wrapping up in time to cheer on the youngest Kilt Runners.
