Niagara beats CoW at Ohio fairgrounds
Wellington, Ohio – June 23, 2007 – While 14 of the world’s best bands were competing at the British Pipe Band Championships in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, the Ohio Scottish Games attracted three top-grade bands in picture-perfect sunny weather at the Lorain County Fairgrounds.
The Grade 1 contest allowed Grade 2 bands to compete, and the Grade 2 Niagara Regional Police placed second, ahead of established Grade 1 band, City of Washington. The contest extended the number of judges to five, with three piping, one ensemble and one drumming.
1st Windsor Police (1st piping, 1st piping, 1st piping, 1st ensemble, 2nd drumming)
2nd Niagara Regional Police (2, 2, 2, 2, 3)
3rd City of Washington (3, 3, 3, 3, 1)
