Prince Edward Island to take beatings in December

Following the success of Kincardine Drums 06, the College of Piping, Summerside, has announced that it will host “Summerside Drums 07” December 7-9, 2007.

Instructors will be snare-drummers Jim Kilpatrick and John Fisher, tenor-drummer Tyler Fry and bass-drummer Craig “Hoss” Colquhoun.

“With more than 80 in-house snare drumming students here at the College of Piping in Summerside it seems to be a natural fit for our organization to act as the host for this event,” said College of Piping Director Scott MacAulay.

Craig Colquhoun, John Fisher, Tyler Fry and Jim Kilpatrick will have to dress a lot warmer than this if they're visiting PEI in December.

Sessions will be held from 8 am to 4 pm on the Saturday and Sunday, and cost is $125, which covers the workshop, a ceilidh and a t-shirt. The Quality Inn Hotel across the street from the College is offering rooms at $49.99 per night.

Those who want to register should call 1-877-BAGPIPE or visit the College of Piping’s website.
