Home / Band Top Story / 806 miles to Chicago…


It’s been said there are only two mistakes one can make along the road to success – not going all the way – and not starting.  The road to success is not easy to navigate. The members of Wake and District have been fortunate over these past 11 years together – having guidance and support to see us along, help us navigate and drive the work and passion possible to succeed.  So much behind us, so much ahead of us — as is ever so on the road.

This weekend brings us to the road once again to Chicago for the 31st Annual Chicago Scottish Games and Highland Festival, being held in Aye-Tasca where our G3 band will be competing. Our thanks to the Midwest Pipe Band Association for accommodating our long distance trip — and all the MWPBA bands for their support and encouragement as we make this 806 mile trek.

For a couple of us – this is a trip “home”.  For others (who have never been on a plane before) — this is a weekend of firsts.  We will surely post photos, stories and results #FromTheField.   Be sure to check out our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for updates from the road…

Safe travels to all those attending the games this weekend — and best of luck to all the competitors.

To our members: For a competitor, there is nothing like being part of a great team.  Without selfless sacrifice it will never happen.  Thank you everyone for being an integral part of this great team – and sacrificing so much week after week to make it happen.
