Yesterday we had the honor of entertaining some folks who help make the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championship possible. They flew all the way from Scotland to visit our mill and take a personal tour with Bob. In addition to learning about our company, they’ve enjoyed some quintessential sights around Portland- including Voodoo Doughnuts and Powell’s City of Books. Last night we took them to the Portland City Grill to take in the most impressive view of the city available.

We had a great visit and talked about the competition this fall, where we will defend our title as World Porridge Champions. It was fun to get to know Linda, the organizer, better and talk about fun ideas for making the competition more international. Fergus and James were busy shooting video and snapping photos of their time with us. If you haven’t seen it, Fergus produced this awesome video recapping the competition. Fergus, a high school senior, works with Carrbridge Films to produce amazing films and aspires to attend film school after his studies are complete. James covers the many events in Carrbridge and you can view his extensive photo collection here.

We’re so happy they could visit and learn a little more about the folks who stole the spurtle. They’ll be in town for a few more days and plan on visiting Timberline Lodge and Cannon Beach.
