Glengarry Highland Games in Maxville Ontario - July 29, 30, 2016
Permalink  
 


More than 50 Pipe bands will be competing this coming Friday & Saturday at one of the largest Highland Games in the Province of Ontario.  If you live in the Northeast USA and want to spend a great weekend steeping yourself in all things Highland Scottish, you'll find yourself richly rewarded by attending these great Games.  You can read all about what is in store by going to the website of the Glengarry Highland Games at this URL:

Hope to see you there!

I'll also post this to the Highland Games Forum.

Robert

I'm debating whether I should go the movie route or just stick with stills, Steve.  Having attended quite a few more Games events that I have, what would you recommend?

The results of the solo and band competitions have been posted for the above Games and you can see them all at this URL: http://ppbso.org/glengarry-highland-games-8 I watched a band from Albuquerque, one from Manchester, Conn. and one from Dunedin, Fla at one time or another today. You can see where each of them placed in the various categories, if you are interested. I actually was able to video each of the above bands either practicing before their performance or during it. There were a number of Clan displays present, but unfortunately, no Lamont Clan display. I took a still photo of each of the Clan displays, which were located under cover inside two of the cattle barns which are used at the Maxville Fair. The barns were relatively new and clean. I was not able to get into the Grandstand to be able to video the athletic competitions or the massed bands as all the Grandstand tickets had been sold earlier in the day. Robert
