Las Vegas Celtic Society: Las Vegas Highland Games
« on: April 09, 2016, 09:51:14 AM »
Greetings! I'm a bit behind on posting this, but the Las Vegas Highland Games will be held on April 16 & 17 at Floyd Lamb State Park! I will be competing in my first solo bagpipe contest (I will be representing Clan Thom(p)son in dress blue tartan)! I will be competing in the 2/4 March, 6/8 March, Slow Air and Piobaireachd (I know, a bit ambitious for my first time. But, go big or go home! Right?)I'm very nervous, but also very excited! If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, then come and say hello!

Good luck William   :)
I'm sure you will do a great job of it.   I know its a lot to ask
and it sounds like you'll be very busy but I would sure like to see
some photos.

I didn't place, but wasn't expecting to on my first competition. I did, however, do very well and the comments from the judges were to that effect. I had a blast doing it and look forward to my next competition, which will most likely be at the Celtic Festival in Flagstaff, AZ July 16 & 17.

On a side note: I had my audition for the Las Vegas Pipe Band and passed, so I am now official. Most of the band will also be in Flagstaff for the games and the Jim Thomson School of Piping.
