Crowds crammed into the beer tent at the rain-soaked Cambridge Highland Games following the Grade 1 band competition.

Cambridge, Ontario – July 19, 2014 – The 78th Fraser Highlanders continued their perfect season in Ontario with another win in Grade 1, this time at the annual Cambridge Highland Games. Despite two firsts in piping, the Toronto Police finished third in the four-band event. Weather was overcast all day, and rain held off for the most part until about 3:30 pm when the skies opened up, hitting the Grade 1 band contest hard. Ian K. MacDonald once again came away with the Professional Piper of the Day aggregate prize. Elizabeth Shaw was Professional Snare Drummer of the Day.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: If your bass drone wants to roar when struck in, it might be riding high on the bottom pin. If so your reed might be too sharp. A quick fix, if time is short, is to put a bit of tape over a third to half of the bush at the top. This will flatten the drone and allow you to shortenit by moving the middle joint down the bottom pin.
