Camelon & District Pipe Band had their first competition of the season last weekend, at Dunbar. According to the RSPBA website, they did rather well, which is nice.
Personally, I'm finding that I miss the competition season not at all. I was never particularly keen on that aspect of the band - I always preferred the social aspect, and really didn't need the stress. It was just that that was the local band, and they competed - so if I wanted to play, that was more or less a pre-requisite.
So, I wish them the very best of luck for the season ahead. But I'm also quite glad to be able to look on from the outside!
