Canmore, Alberta – September 3, 2017 – After speculation that there would be no games this year, the scenic Canmore Highland Games came up with a beautiful, clear day in the mountains, a moderate temperature and a large crowd of games enthusiasts. City of Regina came back to win the two-band Grade 2 contest against Rocky Mountain, Grade 2 winners at Maxville and the Calgary Highland Games the day before. Band judges were various combinations of David Hilder, Shauna Hilder, Dave Hicks, Rene Cusson, Blair T. Brown and John Fisher.
