As a team, this was our 6th year together and I thought it would be kind of cool to do a recap of some of the events we took part in.

So I got another delivery in the mail today. Bhangra Empire Patches! Can’t wait to put these on our track jackets and other Empire gear.
Bhangra Empire’s final pose at Jashan 2011. The ending sign with the Canadian flag maple leaf was a gesture to show how much we appreciate all the support we have gotten from our fans north of the border. Hopefully we return to Canada soon! (Photo Courtesy of Jashan Bhangra)
