I should've known, but I couldn't believe the amount of weapons at WI Highland Games 2010. I did have a good time. I tried haggis, heard pipers compete, saw athletic competition and ran into some friends. Obviously the origin of Highland games involve weapons, but I really don't need to know how to wield a mace or throw a battle axe with accuracy.
Seen were people of all ages sporting swords as part of their costume or recently purchased. Plastic swords, decorative, homemade, antique... all manner of swords. I too bought a sword a couple years ago at auction, but my wife wouldn't let me play with it. I gave it away.
