For those who just wish to play at the Highland Games please reply separately.
If you are travelling from Europe you’ll need to book flights with Easyjet to Edinburgh - the coach will leave from Edinburgh Airport on Friday 24th May at 6pm and drop everyone back early Sunday 2nd June 6am for flights back to mainland Europe.
Costs - based on 30 people / 9 nights
- flight - £200 (if you book now www.easyjet.com)
- coach - £200
- accommodation - £22 per person per night based on Youth Hostel rates (approx £200)
To take part you need to be a piper, drummer (snare &/or tenor) - we have drums so no need to bring any. And be able to play the new 4B competition set and our basic repertoire of tunes - see www.scotchwatch.org for the scores. We need a minimum of 8 pipers, 3 snares and 1 bass player - it’d be great to have 2 tenors!
If you would like to bring a partner then this is possible too.
Please let me know ASAP if you are interested- we will be asking for a £200 (250CHF) deposit.
Any questions please contact me.
