Calgary goes to North Stratton
Calgary – August 31, 2019 – The Calgary Highland Games took place in cool and damp conditions, with fairly constant rain in the mid-to-late morning. The Highland dancing platform was not covered, and some events were cancelled. The band events were spared the rain, which came back just in time for massed bands. In the Grade 2 event, North Stratton won a close contest on ensemble preference. Open Piper of the Day was Raphael Mercier of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and the Open Drummer of the Day was Elizabeth Shaw of Calgary.
The contest is the first of the weekend in Alberta, which includes the Canmore Highland Games on Sunday.
