Let the 2012 Competition Season Begin!

Wow, it's been a long time since my last post!  Well, as the sun comes out, pipers are beginning to emerge from their basements after a long winter of practice.  The 2012 season is under way.

Last week I traveled to Phoenix with the Wasatch & District Pipe Band where the grade 3 and 4 bands enjoyed a weekend filled with fun and good music.  The grade 3 won both the medley and the MSR and a special congratulations are in order for the grade 4 band which won its first contest ever by winning both the times medley and the march medley.  Mini band competitions were also offered and WDPB grade 3 and 4 bands took first and second respectively.  Soloists also represented the band very well, particularly in piobaireachd, taking first prize in each grade.

Next up at the end of April is Sacramento.  The competition is going to really stiff, so it’s back to work for now.  I’m resolving this year to update the blog more frequently, so check in often for the latest updates.
