The 8th Gathering of South American Pipe Bands – October 16th – 20th in Bariloche

SASPD will be one of the 8 Pipe Bands performing and competing at the 8th.Gathering of South American Pipe Bands, with Highland Dancers in Bariloche. Some of us in the Band have been to all the previous gatherings and are looking forward to visit such a beautiful place in the Andes. The Gathering will be hosted by the Bariloche Highlanders, a new Pipe Band in Argentina.

We always look forward to meeting our friends again in the other Bands and having fun playing, competing and socializing (with some beers of course) and so celebrating the event in good Scottish fashion.

Caledonian Ball – November 2nd                                        

This will be a mega event, celebrating the 95 years of the St. Andrew Society and ten years of the Pipe Band – Hípica Paulista, Brooklin.

Keeping Societies going is hard work, but our Scottish traditions have been fully and well supported here by the many Communities and friends that have been made over the years. We hope to keep going for another 95 years.

The Venue at the Clube Hípica is also a fantastic and great setting – I am sure this traditional party will be a success.
