Tug Of War
Since its inaugural event in 2007, where a standing grudge-match between The Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa and The Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders, played out to a packed house of some 10,000 spectators and fans, the event has become an annual crowd pleaser with teams from The Black Watch, The Essex and Kent Scottish and The Lake Superior Scottish competing for the cup in an ever growing field of tug-o-war struggle.
