Congratulations to Mr Evans and the Pipe Band PSG on hosting a fantastic Gathering on Saturday. Despite the cold and inclement weather, the community turned out was good. Results from the gathering are as follows:
March Selection 3rd
Pipe bands are a long-standing tradition in other areas with Celtic roots, such as the regions of Galicia, Asturias and Cantabria in Northern Spain and Brittany in Western France, as well as other regions with Celtic influence in other parts of Europe. The tradition is also long-standing in the British Commonwealth of Nations countries and former British colonies such as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Brunei, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Juvenile band members must be under the age of eighteen, with the exception of one “adult” player, often an instructor, who may serve as the Pipe Major or Pipe Sergeant. The remaining categories have no age restriction, but are based on proficiency. Grade One is the highest of these categories, and Novice is the lowest.
