2004 Contests

Winnipeg Scottish Festival

February 22

Band plays brand new medley and new MSR. Lots of new players, new L/D...much better in medley than MSR, but overall a promising start.

Brandon Highland Festival

Brandon, MB

April 24

Band plays both MSR and medley. Played a very nice MSR, and a pretty good medley. Still working out harmonies, and tried a new break reels-air today. Better tone than Maxville 2003, with lots of room to improve.

Moose Jaw Highland Festival

May 22

Band plays medley and MSR. Playing up from Grade 3 is a very nice band: Durham Regional Police from Ontario. Durham wins drumming and ensemble (huh?) and takes the medley event, we win MSR and overall.

Regina Highland Games

May 23

Band plays two very good sets, and cleanly wins both events. Soloists from the band do well in Grade 1 events, and our junior band also wind Saskatchewan Championship in their grade.

Sept. 5

Band wins Grade 2 event, and plays up into an otherwise empty Grade 1 class for the adjudication.

 

2003 Contests

February 15

Band plays medley and MSR. Lots of new players, new L/D...pretty rough. Only Grade 2 band in contest.

Brandon Highland Festival

Brandon, MB

April 26

Band plays both MSR and medley. Getting better, but too many rookie tone & note errors. Only Grade 2 band in contest.

Moose Jaw Highland Festival

May 17

Band plays medley and MSR. Mix up at line re: which set (medley or MSR) due to contest mixing sheets around. Pretty good set with some horrendous tonal issues. Lose to Big Rock Pipe Band (Edmonton) in both events.

Regina Highland Games

May 18

Better on day two. Win both events, but not cleanly. Big Rock provides excellent competition.

Glengarry Highland Games

Maxville, ON

August 2

The North American Pipe Band Championships. Tone and performance level not there. Finish 12/13 in Grade. Ouch.

Montreal Highland Games

August 3

The North American Pipe Band Championships. Tone and performance level not there. Had a good sound coming up to the line (as noted on sheets) but not blown...big work to do. 3rd place.

North American Pipe Band Championships

Maxville, ON

August 4

The CRPB had an excellent play in the medley, and a mediocre MSR. The overall result was 8th or 9th...very disappointing, and a large dose of reality therapy.

Montreal Highland Games

August 5

After spending the night sleeping on the band bus (our Montreal hotel rooms were given away) we played a very good medley, with room to improve. Given the circumstances, it was a good performance. Now, back to the drawing board...

Calgary Highland Games

September 1

CRPB wins Grade 2, with Big Rock's Grade 3 band challenging up, and playing well. CRPB also snags the "Dress & Deportment" award!

Canmore Highland Games

The band plays a very good medley, and sweeps straight firsts against bands playing up. The CRPB also winds the "Marching & Discipline" prize, for the second day running! Later the band performed to a wildly enthusiastic beer tent crowd.
