be found lurking around Tartan.
Games are about competition and we are happy to report some of the best
dancers, drummers, pipers and throwers are back to defend their titles.
The caliber of sport is exhilarating!

Both will be playing on the main

local talent and showcase our deep talent pool here in BC.
