Once again, the committee
look forward to welcoming
friends old and new to share
in a fun packed, busy week
of competitions, games and
entertainment
for
all
the
family.
This year the raft race has been
shortened, with the starting line
now at the top of Meikle Pool.
This easier race will hopefully
attract
lots of entries keen to
win the £50 prize fund.
We are also delighted to have
the fantastic Blue Ridge playing
at our end-of-gala dance - the
first time they have ever played
in Ardgay Hall!
In
a
new
addition
to
our
programme, we are delighted to
have been
invited by Dornoch
Festival Week to take part
in
their
sandcastle
competition.
We hope this will be the start of
a great friendship between our
two events.
Our Gala Queen
this
year
is
Ashlee Dale from Ardgay, who
was picked by Wood & Stone at
the Queen Dance in June. Her
attendants are Jade Mackenzie,
Gledfield Primary School, Ciara
Bow,
Bonar
Bridge
Primary
School and Fiona Dalton
from
Rosehall
Primary
School.
You
can see them officially crowned
at
this
year’s
Opening
Ceremony in Bonar.
Welcome to the
Kyle of Sutherland
Gala Week 2010!
