Georgetown Highland Games
44th Annual Georgetown Highland Games!
Join us on Saturday, June 8, 2019 for the 44th Annual Georgetown Highland Games!
Online Registration Now Available!
The PPBSO is happy to announce the location of our Silver Medal Qualifier and CPA C grade contests. This year’s contests will be held in the historic Knox Presbyterian Church in Georgetown, Friday June 7 – 7pm.
This church is located minutes from the fairgrounds, the site of the Georgetown Highland Games. This is shaping up to be an incredible event, and all are welcome and encouraged to listen to an evening of professional piobaireachd. There are a few spots still available for competitors who want to play for a place in the 2020 Silver Medal contests, and for those who want a chance to play against other CPA members in their grade.
A huge thank you to the Georgetown Highland Games and Knox PC, Georgetown for helping secure this venue for our inaugural event!
