Pipe and Drum competition season for the EUSPBA came to a close last weekend in Richmond, Va where our very own Alan Armstrong finished FIRST in Grade 2 Piobaireachd. Alan finished 2nd overall out of 131 Piobaireachd players in the EUSPBA.

Congratulations to the following band members for their individual efforts this season including:
– Joe Harwell for finishing 5th out of 67 in Bass Amateur
– Warren Hinson for finishing 6th out of 67 in Bass Amateur
– Jacob Egen finishing 29th out of 95 drummers in Snare Gr 4
– Josh Hinson for finishing 49th out of 131 pipers in overall G2 Piping Events

As for the competing members of the band – for our second season on the field we tied for 6th place with the Charleston Police Pipe Band (this in a field of 117 pipe bands); Charleston PD also attended one more competition than we did and we still tied them for 6th!!! Both Wake & District and Charleston were the top bands in Grade 5 for the Southern Branch of the EUSPBA.
