The team running the Tiree Wave Classic have already gained the respect of many by continually running the event for 30 years, but now the crew are delighted to announce an additional and significant new award from the regional Scottish Thistle Awards.
“GREAT NEWS. VERY PROUD OF THE TEAM
Were now going up against the Ryder Cup and World Mountain Biking Champs…….easy then! Last night the Tiree Wave Classic wins ‘Best Sporting Event’ at the Scottish Thistle Awards regional finals in Inverness!
The Wave Classic is now shortlisted for the National Finals in Edinburgh on March 18th 2016. A highly unexpected result and thanks and congratulations to Stuart MacLennan from Tiree Music Festival which took the top award in the ‘Best Cultural Event or Festival’. Stuart also uplifted our first place trophy for us at the awards which we all expected TMF to do well at! However we have stiff competition for the national award but I may have to dust down the kilt for the Edinburgh awards in March!
