band is looking forward to the 2005 season. We have strong musical
leadership from Pipe Major Angus MacPherson and lead drummer
Alistair Fraser and improved numbers and talent on our snare
line. We have introduced some new players to the tenor corps
and have our original lead drummer, Gwyn MacGregor, playing
bass. In the pipe section, we have had a couple of veteran players
take the year off but fortunately, a couple of players have
returned to the band. We will have, once again, a strong pipe
section for the summer games circuit and the trip back East
to Maxville/Montreal. The goal this year is to improve the quality
and consistency of our performances with a focus on our MSR
playing. We had a great day at Montreal in 2004. We are hoping
to play at that standard at both Maxville and Montreal in August.
finished off the season with a second place overall at the North
Amerian Championships in Maxville and placed second at Montreal.
A strong showing by an improved drum section helped us immensely
in both the local games circuit and the trip back East. We are
looking to build upon our performance this year for a trip to
the Worlds in 2006.
