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.

TIP OF THE DAY
Always listen to your drones when practising. If they drift out, fix them. You’ll avoid getting used to the sound of imperfect drones, and learn more about how your drones change and react.
