The Backwoods Historical Society, the league of Backwoods Gentlemen, the Backwoods Sporting society, the International Backwoods Committee and the Backwoods Guild of Master craftsmen have spent the last months heads bowed, wills and opinions grinding away, seldom resting in their tectonic debate as to the shape of Insider 2012. They have reflected on the honour conferred and the legacy this event bestows upon its people. They have considered their influence fairly, strongly and evenly and a decision has been reached.
In this year 2012, the year in which the Olympics Games grace our fair shores, the efforts of the Backwoods community will be directed, side by side with our wider peoples, in bringing forth a celebration of all that is sport.
We will remember the historic victories, recreate the titanic struggles, champion the champions and celebrate the amazing celebrities who have given so much to this island nation through the power of their sport.
And we will do this with fire and feasting, a towering line up of musicians, lights and singing, a dancing gathering spectacle of world class talent brought forth upon these hallowed fields of play. The world has not seen the like of it. Sport.
Ladies and Gentlemen we hereby invite you to the First Insider Olympiad.
This historic spectacle is to be celebrated at Inshriach House, Near Aviemore, between the 15th and the 18th June. You can apply for tickets randomly through the internet or you can wait for us to put up a website.
In celebration of the 2012 Insider Olympiad The Backwoods Sporting Society have commissioned a brief history of the Modern Olympics - starting with The 1896 Games in Athens - with athlete profiles and eyewitness accounts of the towering achievements and pivotal moments of the games, paying particular attention to the event that started it all -
Don't miss it.
