This year our AGM (Annual General Meeting) is being held in the town of Greenville, SC! We have chosen the 11th annual Greenville Scottish Games as our meeting location and event this year, and we can't think of a better place to gather. The Games, also called Gallabrae, are held on the grounds of beautiful Furman University, just north of the city.
The Games take place the weekend of Memorial Day, Friday May 27th - Sunday, May 29th. The weekend kicks off with a Scottish parade downtown Greenville on Friday evening at 6 p.m. We will be participating in the parade so come join us that evening for a very fun event! People line the streets 2 and 3 deep to view the parade.
The Games are Saturday at Furman University; they haven't posted the schedule for the day yet, but keep checking their website for updates and ticket prices to be posted at http://www.gallabrae.com/
