“Go back?” he thought. “No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!” So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien

The patter and pitter of the bagpipes and drums (and a metronome on steroids) echoed through the North Carolina State Highway Patrol Training Center this past Saturday morning as members of the Wake and District G5 and G4 competition bands drilled and drilled and drilled.  The tunes, the tone and the ensemble playing is getting better and better each time we take the instruments out of the box.  We are preparing for the back half our the EUSPBA “Southern Branch” competitions which begin in Charleston on Saturday, 20 September 2014.  We’ve come so far together and look forward to so many possibilities…

Would you believe the skirl of the pipes and beat of the drums sooth the soul of 1 month old baby; that or they cause an explosion inside the diaper of the same child…LOVE you little Corinne.
