Attention Pro Athletes
Due to time considerations, the Longs Peak Scottish Irish Highland Festival has felt the need to reduce the number of pro athletes invited to Longs Peak Scottish festival to total of (8) competitors. The top (5) from previous year receive the first invitations. After that we will evaluate the pro competitions (based on the Bethlehem rankings from August 2016 though the 2017 application deadline date of July 12, 2017) and invite the top (3) applicants based on those rankings.
