I'm deciding whether the value of the golden spurtle and the honour of winning it is worth the cost of a return flight to Scotland.  ;D ;D ;D

Hmmm. I guess I would have to charter a Concord to get there on time, but they aren't flying any longer, and I don't suppose the U. S. A. F. would loan me an SR-71 Blackbird for a couple of days.  :'( :'( :'(

You're in luck, Joan. I won't be able to take the prize away from you. It's all yours...  ;)

Canny timetabling to fit in 24 annual events since 1996.  If you miss this one it might not be very long to the next one.

Perhaps a careless transcriber?
Since 1996, the World Porridge Making Championship has taken place each year in the Scottish Highlands village of Carrbridge.
The first Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championships were held in Carrbridge on Sunday, 11th September, 1994.

The Golden Spurtle was won by a Swede ....

'Mr Carlsson impressed judges with his dish Nordic Porridge - Caramel Sweet and Sour, a porridge made with oatmeal, cloudberry liqueur, orange peel and whipped cream, topped with flamb?ed cloudberries and whipped cream.'

Mr Carlsson  - I need you to cook that for me - a lot  :o ;D

Can't understand why the judges weren't impressed by my bung-it-in-the-microwave Oats So Simple  ???

Not shocked by the idea of milk. However, the idea of instant oats in a microwave leads me speechless...
