This weekend marked the spectacle of the 61st Annual Grandfather Mountain Highland Games (GMHG) at MacRae Meadows on Grandfather Mountain near Linville, NC. Although Wake and District has never been formally invited to participate at these games — band members were once again embedded on the mountain – creating and participating in all the shenanigans.  The organizers of the GMHG strive to be the premier Scottish Highland games and gathering of Clans, Guests, Families, Sponsors, Patrons and Visitors.  Congratulations to our members who competed.  They included:

  • Joseph Williams: G4 6th Sr. March.
  • Dalton Marshall: G3 3rd 6/8 march
  • Timothy Hinson: G2 1st 6/8 march, 2nd Piob, 3rd MSR, 6th H/J (G2 2nd place piper of the Day)
  • Andrew Kerr: G1 3rd 6/8
  • Spirit of the South Quartet: 2nd place

To all our family, friends and fans on the mountain – we hope you had a grand time and have a safe journey home; see you at rehearsal.
