I realize this post is REALLY late, but I just found the board. I'm on the USS Committee for the Costa Mesa Games. Both the LA Scots and Prince Charles were invited down for the Grade 1 contest. Prince Charles declined because they wanted to go to a different games in Canada, so, no Grade 1 contest. So, LA Scots were asked to perform. Even though their Grade 1 band declined to come, there was no reason for their Grade 3 to decline, so they came.
Unfortunately, with only 2 local Grade 1 bands, when can't make it, there's no contest. Money has always been an issue for the Costa Mesa games, so bringing in a non-local Grade 1 band just isn't an option.
We did the best we could however.
