Regina Mini Gathering 2017


Thanks to everyone who came out to play and enjoy tunes at the Mini Gathering! 

We had about 40 solo piping performances, 20 solo drumming, and 10 band performances. Bands with members performing were: The Conservatory of Performing Arts, The 96 Highlanders, City of Regina, North Saskatchewan Regiment, Saskatoon Police and Prince Albert Highlanders.

Many thanks to our volunteer adjudicators for this event: Barry Robinson, Brett Stinson, Kenna Whelan, Bryde Whelan, and Eva Rennie.

Special thanks to the Regina volunteers who organized and setup the school location, operated the food service, and did all the stewarding.
