Check out WWW.gsfg.org.

Well I was stupid enough to be Co-chair of Piping and Drumming for the Smoky Mountain Highland Games. Please check out the website. We will have Dorm rooms available. Also on Sunday we will have a Drum Major Competition.

Apparently it split with one group moving to Maryville College (the group PoR's with), and another trying to maintain it in Gatlinburg. Last I heard, they're currently scheduled a week apart.

Yeah, its a shame really. My family were amongst those who started the Gatlinburg games: my Mum, with my sister's help (she's a teacher and judge), ran the highland dancing for many years and my Dad and I helped out where ever needed.

For those interested, the website for the still-in-Gatlinburg games is: http://gatlinburg-scottish-highland-games.org

The board of directors with the exception of 2 people, voted to move it to Maryville College. Long story both sides take it personal. I don't. I was asked to run the P&D by Smoky Mountain Highland Games first and so here I am. The people running Gatlinburg Games a fine people. Kim who runs the P&D is a good person and will do well. The SMHG wanted a different venue than Gatlinburg and Maryville college and the City of Maryville stepped up to the plate. Running the games a week apart will be tough for both parties. But hey our band now has 3 local games we can compete at!!!! Yeah.

Too bad I don't have the time off, I could go and compete at one set of games, camp out at PoR's house for a week and the compete at the other games. I could practice day and night between the two to fix what the judges say on the first go around.

Is EUSPBA sanctioning both games?

I can't imagine any good comes of this.

"Well if it can't be my way I'm going to **** in the soup." Savannah went through a similar split several years ago and they're still recovering.

Whatever. Our band is inclined to drop both games next year. This year we're going to Gatlinburg (assuming they get sanctioned) just because of the odd day - even day thing. Gatlinburg, Loch Norman, and Greenville will all have medley (for g4).
