Bader's new farm camp, in Kabd, Kuwait
|The Kings, Armstrong's, Weston's and Bader attended this Friday's session.|
Bader now has a second camp in the desert. For his fowl and his brother's goats. This is a large enclosed compound, with about a 2000 square foot AC'd building. A big improvement over the last camp. We practiced almost every Friday for the last few weeks before the St Andrew's Ball function December 1st.

Kuwait Caledonian's Welcome Back Ceilidh.
Piping were Bader. Keith Armstrong, John Weston, Lyndon Baines, Stewart King, with Talal and Dave Gordon providing the drumming.
On April 9th, KBR (a big US Government contractor) invited the band to play at a memorial service for 17 of their fallen comrades in Iraq, at their compound in Camp Arifjan. The big U.S. Military base in southern Kuwait.
It took almost an hour to clear the gates to get into the camp because of the severe security.
The performance went well. We played "Amazing Grace"
and "Going Home", two memorial favourites.
Bader did the Muslim prayer

New Year's Eve
The civil authorities cracked down on all public, and many private party events this New Years. For security reasons.
Piping in the New Year at Fiona and Phil Brooks' villa
|It surprised us that piping in the New Year wasn't really a tradition with these Brits. The colonials had to tell them what to do. John did the honors this year, and later gave another short performance.|
|Bader tried his hand with a hula hoop - with predictable results.|
