Kincardine, Ontario – July 7, 2012 - The Grade 1 Toronto Police Pipe turned in a first prize at the 2012 Kincardine Scottish Festival in warm and sunny conditions in the idyllic town on the coast of Lake Huron. Along with the City of Chicago Pipe Band, Toronto Police debuted a new medley from a draw at the line. The Ottawa Police won the Grade 2 event, and Ian K. MacDonald enjoyed a solid day in the Professional solo piping with three firsts and a second. Callum Harper of Hamilton, Ontario, had a perfect day in the Grade 1 Amateur Solo Piping, taking all four of his events.
