Ellerslie, Alberta – June 18, 2017 – The second of back-to-back games in Alberta took place in Ellerslie on the grounds of the Scottish Society of Edmonton. Weather was nice for much of the day, but band events had to be delayed in the afternoon due to severe thunderstorm warnings and high winds. Rocky Mountain again came out on top for the second day in a row, winning the MSR event.
