Band members traveled to Charleston for solo and band competitions the weekend of September 20th. Our congratulations to Alan Armstrong for placing 4th in a field of over a dozen competitiors in Grade 2 piobaireachd competition. Warren Hinson also competed solo in bass drumming as a member of Wake & District in Charleston!!! As for band competition – we simply say “congratulations” to the Grandfather Mountain Highlanders for their first place victory as we suffered a similar fate they fell ill to in Loch Norman – disqualification of the pipers leading to last place for the band. Not the best day for the band – but we had a good time and are still smiling as evident by the photo above (taken after the competition results were given out). Check out all the wonderful photos taken by Véronique McMillan here.
Kudos to Alan Armstrong and Warren Hinson for competing with the band for the first time…sorry if we let you down. We’ll give it another go in Richmond next month!
