Perth's World Record Kilt Run
The most Scottish run of the year!
The Perth World Record Kilt Run, taking place on Saturday, June 22
, 2013, is in recognition and celebration of the800
anniversary of the founding of Perth, Scotland. The run takes place through the fully closed streets of historicdowntown Perth, Ontario, and along the banks of the Tay River.
The Perth Kilt Run Committee is demonstrating its commitment to the community by instituting
for the Perth Kilt Run. Drummond Central School has again been invited to be one of these Cheering Stations!
The recognition comes with cash prizes for the best cheering station, to invest in a community (orschool) project. The first place prize is $1,000
and last year, we WON!
The community bulletin board besideour front entrance was purchased with our prize money.
Having had tremendous fun at the first two events, we are challenging all DCS friends, family and neighbours to getinvolved again this year! Volunteers will need to get to the cheering station before 5:00 p.m., get organized withmusic, noisemakers and costumes, and stay in place until the last runner has passed. This year our Cheering Station will be located at Last Duel Park. Please note that street closures go into effect at 5:45 p.m.
A panel of judges will pass by all the registered cheering stations and then determine who has the best one. Here are
the six “look
for’s” that j
udges will want to see:
Efficiency of water handed out;
Interaction with runners (using their names);
Music, entertainment value;
Enthusiasm and creativity (visuals and/or costumes);
Surprise factor (unique to each station).
Please demonstrate the fabulous school spirit for which Drummond Central is renowned by coming out on June22
to help us form the best Cheering Station
