This years Year of 100 Pipes and Drums was a great success and should be returning with even more to watch in 2012, The Omaha Pipe and Durm Band won the Chief MacArturs Quaich. Thanks to all and to Ty and Chris Kaufman. Without your support we would not have been able to have such a great festival.

This year we will be honoring the athletes as the Year of Athletes. We will have special events just for them and those of us that might feel a kinship with them. We may have a special, special preformance. So make sure to invite everyone you meet to register this year. We would like to have a record turnout to support the athletes. After all, Highland games and our youth are curtial to carry on our traditions at the festival.
