Anther "for completeness" post, as I was unable to attend this event (for reasons I'll blog about later). Last Sunday the band competed in the Bridge of Allan Highland Games. We were entered in both the 4B and 4A contests, but it appears the Pipe Major elected to withdraw from the latter (not a surprise).
In the event, the band came 4th overall, scoring 4th and 5th for piping, 2nd for drumming, and 7th for ensemble. Which was a decent result, but perhaps not the very best preparation for the Worlds...
Also of note, our young drum major competed, coming 2nd overall in the Juvenile contest on a Marching & Discipline preference. Which is a good result for her.
