The band hit the strip in Las Vegas to test ourselves against bands from California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Canada on April 20th and 21st at the Las Vegas Celtic Gathering and Highland Games. The competition was tough but we managed to represent ourselves well. The band placed 2nd in the Time Limit Medley and 4t in the Quick March Medley in a field of 8 bands. This is also the first time the band competed this early in the year.
The trip presented some difficulties as one of our members arrived Saturday morning, but the airlines mishandled the luggage containing the kilt and other uniform parts. The band had to scramble to find some replacement parts in order to have enough people to compete.
