MacIsaac sweeps up at Summerside

Summerside, Prince Edward Island – June 28-29, 2008 – Matt MacIsaac of Halifax, Nova Scotia, won all of the Professional solo piping events at the annual Summerside Highland Games. In the band events, Fredericton and Dartmouth each won the Grade 2 contest on the separate days. Conditions were testing, with heavy rain on Sunday forcing everything into the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada’s amphitheater. Aaron Carter of Fredericton, New Brunswick, won all of the Professional solo snare drumming events, and Brittany Otto of Vancouver won the amateur piping aggregate.
