The Grade 1 Dysart & Dundonald Pipe Band of Fife, Scotland, has secured a new three-year sponsorship agreement with the Kilts & More Highland wear and bagpipes retailer that will enable the band to travel to all five RSPBA major championships that Pipe-Major Greig Canning described as “a huge boost to the band coming just in time for the 2012 competitive season.”

Along with the deal, the band will change its name to “Kilts & More-Dysart & Dundonald.”

“We felt right from the outset that the benefits to both parties will be there for all to see,” Canning said. “The band currently has a small crop of overseas players, travelling in from continental Europe to practice with the band in Fife and to attend major and minor contests and we feel that this deal further compounds the international feel that we have in the current setup at Dysart & Dundonald.”

With the sponsorship the band will secure a new set of drums and several “enhancements” to its uniforms.

 

The sponsorship is the latest Grade 1 deal to involve a dealer of Highland wear. The 78th Fraser Highlanders were sponsored for several years by the Scottish Lion, and Shotts & Dykehead continue to be sponsored by the House of Edgar.

TIP OF THE DAY
Make every piece of finger technique in exactly the same way. Concentrate on applying the same strategy to golf, because if you swing the club the same way every time you will be a much better golfer. Fourteen clubs; one swing. It’s the same thing.
