78th Fraser Highlanders competing at Cobourg.

Cobourg, Ontario – June 21, 2014 – The 78th Fraser Highlanders celebrated the first official day of summer with a convincing win at the Cobourg Highland Games, under spectacular weather on the shores of Lake Ontario. The Grade 1 challenge that the Grade 2 Ottawa Police Service Pipe Band presented the week before in the MSR competition at Georgetown didn’t really materialize in the Cobourg Grade 1 Medley event. Ian K. MacDonald was the Professional Piper of the Day, while Zack Miller was Professional Drummer of the Day.
