Barrie Pipes & Drums headed to the Fergus Scottish Festival last Saturday for their final competition of the season. It was our weakest performance of the year however we still managed to salvage 3rd place! I think everyone was dreaming about the upcoming month and half break!!! Regardless we still had a lot of fun and finished the season off right!
Unfortunately, sad news greeted us with the passing of Ed Neigh. Ed made a huge impact in the North American piping scene and he will be dearly missed. Our condolences to Ed's family and our piping pals in the Paris Port Dover Pipe Band who in recent years were personally instructed by Ed. Rest In Peace Ed, you were a great guy and always willing to lend a helping hand.
We have already started to work on our brand new Grade 4 MSR. Practices will start back up in mid September. Congrats band on a HUGE season, we put the pedal to the metal in May and never looked back.
