North Stratton evens the score at Ellerslie

North Stratton on their way to a win at Ellerslie.

Ellerslie, Alberta – June 24, 2018 – Contrasting the previous day at Red Deer, competitors and spectators welcomed the warm, sunny day at the annual Ellerslie Highland Games. It was already 23C by 9am, and warmed up to near 30C by the time bands were playing in the afternoon. The Grade 2 “Battle of Alberta” proved to be just that, with the medley contest being broken on ensemble preference with North Stratton edging out Rocky Mountain for the win. Zephal Knichel won the Professional Piper of the Day for the second straight day, and the Professional Drumming aggregate trophy went to Andrew Miller.
