I am just getting started with Olympic Weightlifting with intentions of eventually competing. I also have an interest in competing in Highland Games. I have never thrown before, so I wouldn't know where to start training for this. Any advice on where to get started, websites or other resources; or advice on how to train for highland games would be greatly appreciated.

Where are you at George? I found a bunch of folks at Yahoo groups.

Also, you should be able to find someone through your local highland games org if the P and B folks don't pan out.
