    BC Highland Games

    I just found these pics and thought they might look good here, the BC Highland Games last year. One pic of a clan getting there cannon ready and the other of one of the pipe bands that was competing.


    Pity the poor fellow with the full cat skin. It was about 25 degrees C that day!


    When that sucker went off, YOU KNEW ABOUT IT!!

    That's a mighty fine lookin' pipe band. A dream of mine is to perform in full No.1 uniform.

    Highland Games are always fun.

    That's the Vancouver Police Pipe Band. My wife and I are out of frame to the left in the stadium seating. I actually had a very small part in the construction of the stadium 21 years ago.

    It was a good day. On the way home I stopped at a motorcycle dealership to buy a helmet for my wife. Nobody batted an eye. I sure wish it were summer again.

    Oh, and Argonian, the temperature scale you use is Polish/German.

    Temps in American

    To aid Auld Argonian and any metrically challenged members, to convert Celsius or C to Farenheit or F, double the number and add 30. The temp. on the day in question was 80 degrees.

    Actually, F=C*9/5+32 and C=(F-32)*5/9. So for 25C, F=25*9/5+32=77F.

    Great pics BM, if your weather on the left coast was anything like ours in Ontario, than that must have been HOT 77-80 in full dress and I thought I was hot in a tuxedo for my brothers wedding in july.

    That was a very hot day by the end. I actually met Big Mikey** in the beer garden there when he was kind enough to invite a fellow kiltie and his buddy to share a table. The rest of the day got fuzzy after that, as after those pints my friend and I went to the whisky tasting than after a scotch pie headed back to the beer garden with some other mates.

    I missed the massed pipe bands at 6 pm, but some neighbors that were there said it was just awesome.

    ** It was also nice to met Ronstew and his wife that day. His Navy Stewart kilt from Rocky is an awesome looking kilt.
