This year, the BC Highland Games & Scottish Festival is using the Eventbrite online ticketing system and barcode scanners.
On Tuesday June 13, emails were sent to the Official Band Contact (shown on the roster the band registered with the BCPA Membership Chair as of May 27, 2017) for each of the pipe bands competing at the 2017 BC Highland Games.
The emails contain instructions detailing how their band members can obtain their complimentary admission ticket.
By Wednesday evening June 14, similar emails will be sent to solo players not competing in a band on the Saturday and people involved in the administration, management, and execution of the piping, drumming, and band events on the Saturday.
People must print out their barcoded complimentary admission ticket OR bring their smartphone with the email containing that ticket and present it at the BC Highland Games SOUTH Entry Gate.
People will have to pay Full Admission price at the gate if they forget their printed ticket or cannot show the email with the barcoded ticket at the gate.
