Whew! What a Summer!

The band has been very busy competing at a number of Highland Games throughout the Pacific Northwest - attending Skagit Valley Highland Games, BC Highland Games, Portland Highland Games and capping off the season with the Seattle Highland Games.  They've done well over the summer, as a band and individually, and had a great time as well.

Marching up to the line at the BC Highland Games, 3rd in Aggregate at the end of the day.

Playing their March, Strathspey and Reel at the Portland Highland Games. The band placed 2nd in  the Grade 4 aggregate and the drum corps tied for 1st.  We had a few solo competitors win their aggregates as well!
