Congratulations to Illustrious Sir Fraser Woodward, MSA Convention Officer; Illustrious Sir Gary Saunders, Potentate/CEO of Khartum Shriners; and all those who helped ensure a successful MSA Convention, including the Parades and Competitions. Well done, Nobles!
In the evening of August 3, Thursday, the Shriners paraded along Broadway Avenue from the Legislative Assembly Building to The Fort Garry Hotel. It was an excellent evening for a parade.
This was the lead car for the parade. It followed two (2) Police vehicles, which unknowingly to our driver, were going too fast for the Nobles marching somewhere behind us.
The Pipe Bands from the various Centers marched and played together. That is a sight not to be seen again in Winnipeg for another 14 years.
The Khartum Komedians rode their firetruck.
Representatives of the various Units and Clubs of the participating Shrine Centers put up an excellent parade that Thursday evening.
Here is a rare sight - a marching Oriental Band.
Looking for his Mama.
Someone has to pick up the poop.
In the morning of August 6, Saturday, another Shrine parade was held in the Assiniboine Park. It was a beautiful day for a parade.
Here come the colors.
Imperial Sir Mike Severe, Imperial Potentate of Shriners International, was in town for the MSA.
Here's Todo with the Lapiña girls and Mom, with Dad looking.
Giggles (or is is Gigglz now?) on his motorbike. Some of the Komedians on their firetruck.
Here is the "Editorial without words".
Still looking for his Mama ...
It was great to see all those various Units and Clubs from the 14 Shrine Centers. These Nobles sure know how to put up a wonderful "show". Looking forward to the next MSA to be hosted by Khartum in 2025.
