The 39th Thistle competition, together with the ‘City of Brisbane’ Highland Dancing Championship, was held on the 17th & 18th March 2012 at Mitchelton State High School Hall.

Adjudicators were from South Australia and Brisbane, with Pipers Brent Johnston, Malcolm Cox and Maurie De Hayr accompanying the dancers. Among the 170 entries received were competitors from all States of Australia.  The extensive programme went very smoothly. 

The championship prizes were presented by Professor Stewart Gill, Principal of Emmanuel College, Queensland University and President of the Society of St Andrew, Qld.  The Society is the major sponsor of the event.

The Thistle Auxiliary is looking forward to the 40th competition in 2013.
