COVID-19 Mitigation Plan: For the Alaskan Scottish Club to be able to host the games this year a COVID mitigation plan was developed. For athletics the following is required: You will be required to wear a mask between events if social distancing (at least 6ft) from the crowd or other athletes is not available. Mask will be required in the athletic tent area, we will be expanding the area this year to allow for more social distancing amongst everyone.  You are also free to set up your own tent along the back fence line of the field. Masks do not need to be worn when you are at your event trigs, but please practice social distancing when on the athletic fields and event trigs. Sanitizing stations will be available throughout the Athletic Areas and Sanitizing wipes will be available at each trig. Please be courteous to your fellow athletes, judges, staff and volunteers!

Customized athletic shirts:  THESE SHIRTS ARE NOT AVAILBLE FOR SALE INDIVDUALLY. This is only to customize the shirt included with your athletic registration. Shirts with your name or nickname on the back are available for $8.00. All personalization will be reviewed by the Athletic Director for appropriateness and limited to 12 characters maximum. Please add this option from the Registration Options. This year athletes will also have the choice between T-Shirt or Sleeveless Shirts for their athletic shirt. There is no additional charge for this and you can make your selection at check-out.

There will be no field entries accepted for Heavy Events. Challenge Stone registrations will be accepted on the day of games if space is still available.

Due to the growing size of our athletics, the Farmer's Walk will no longer be offered as an event on the Athletic field at the end of the day. The Farmer's walk will now be part of the Strongman competition which will be taking place on Sunday!
