Kingston, Ontario – May 26, 2012 - The annual Kingston Scottish Festival was held again in spectacular weather before a larger crowd than ever. The event is run independently of an association, but applies most essential rules of the Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario. For the first time in its 10-year history, the competition held a Grade 1 band event, attracting three competitors. The Peel Regional Police Pipe Band emerged victorious over Medley and MSR contests, each critiqued by four adjudicators who assessed bands strictly on ensemble.

TIP OF THE DAY
If you’re continually struggling to get your drones in tune, chances are something is wrong. Try changing one or more reeds, checking bores for obstructions, anything. Don’t just suffer.
