On Saturday, our band took to the field in Maxville for the oldest & largest highland games in North America - The Glengarry Highland Games. There was a lot riding on this performance as winning in Maxville is every bands dream if you are in an active pipe band in North America. There was a total of 54 bands, 13 of which were in our grade.
We put down easily the best performance of the year under extreme pressure. Our band is leading in points for the PPBSO Champion Supreme designation and we knew we had a good crack at the North American title if we could squeak off a clean performance. I can't stress enough how proud I am of all the members in our band. We took the field with confidence and let the countless hours of practice take over. Speaking for a few of us, there were a few teary eyes marching off the field as we all knew we played amazing. Fortunately the judges thought so too! We took BEST PIPES, 2nd in drumming and a 1st in ensemble (1,2,2,1).
We have one more competition before the season is over which is Fergus this coming weekend. Again, amazing job band, I am really proud of you all. GRADE 4 LOOK OUT!
