The afternoon setup


Top Table after the setup crew finished.




Recent local political events almost canceled this year's St. Andrew's Ball, but through the concerted efforts of our patron, and the Kuwait Caledonian's Committee, a license was finally obtained.

The evening was a great success,
in spite of Government and hotel surveillance.

Thanks to all our guests for your cooperation this evening.







An up and coming piper comes to see the band in person....






Many thanks to our sponsors for their support in making this event so successful.

710 KD was raised by the raffle for charities in Kuwait and Scotland.
