September 21, 2012 – Loon Mountain 2012
The Rob Roy organization ended the competition season by attending the annual New Hampshire Highland Games in Lincoln, New Hampshire at the Loon Mountain Ski Resort. The weather matched the incredible fun our members had in that mountain retreat. Both the Grade 5 band and the Grade 2 band competed and our Highland Dancers were in action as well.
The competition schedule was hectic but made enjoyable because of the great weather.
