Default Re: Pleasanton Games 2017 - Band Competitions SUNDAY

It's wonderful to see such a strong G2 presence.

I can remember many years where there was no G2 contest at all. There might be one band, who had to play up in order to have anyone to compete against.

It's why I made the trip to the Colonial Highland Games (Fair Hill Maryland) a couple years ago, due to most of the Eastern G2 bands being in attendance. It was great, seeing bands I'd not seen, but due to pullouts there were only three G2 bands.
