Kirkmahoe Gala June 2011 - a sample of the day

Despite a poor forecast the weather stayed fine for our Gala which was opened with songs from local singer Caitlin Bell followed by jazz from the Scott Murphy Quartet.

Various Charities were represented including the School and the Church. This year's featured Charity was Greyhound Rescue.These beautiful graceful former racing dogs came along with their new owners or carers and we learned that a greyhounds can reach speeds of 0-45mph faster than a Ferrari....we were told, however, that they do not come in shades of red!
For the Dare Devils there was a climbing wall, a bouncy castle and Racing Karts.
                       There was a good variety of stalls.
The Ladies of the Rural served up drinks and wonderful home baking in the Refreshment Tent.

Neil Claire & Carla did a great job on the Barbeque
          And Travis thoroughly enjoyed Smashing Crockery.
Thornhill Pipe Band entertained us, and to hear a short medley of their tunes please click on the link below.
