Embro Highland Games on Canada Day

After Katrine did so well and had so much fun at the Georgetown Highland Games, and after much pleading by her to “go to another competition” we looked around and found the Embro Highland Games. A very early morning ensued fueled by a quick stop at Tim Horton’s for donuts, followed by a 2 hour drive.

We arrived and got setup, since Katrine was dancing in the Primary A category she was dancing at about 9:40am. First up were the Pas de Basque 516 followed by Pas de Basque and Highcuts 513.

After that we took a break 510 and let Katrine play on the playground for a time and then found our way to a lemonade stand for a fresh squeezed refresher (for the non-North American readers, that was un-carbonated lemonade). Katrine really liked watching the tug-of-war competition 507and Glenn appreciated the massed pipes.501

Finally the dance results were in. Katrine recieved a 6th place in the Pas de Basque, and did not place in the Pas de Basque and Highcuts. She did however receive a collapsible lawn chair as a participation award, a medal for her 6th place showing, and a stick of candy for turning in her bib number.

All in all it was a good day and a really enjoyable Highland Games. If Katrine is still interested in Dancing next year, it will definitely be on our calendar.

Finally here are 2 videos of Katrine dancing.
