Triumph Street confirms August Maxville / Montreal trip

The “new edition” Grade 2 Triumph Street Pipe Band has confirmed that it will make the 4,000 kilometre trip to compete in the 2007 North American Pipe Band Championships at the Glengarry Highland Games in Maxville, Ontario.

After competing at Maxville on August 4, the band will also compete at the Montreal Highland Games on August 5.

Triumph Street also confirmed that it will perform at the annual “B In The Park” concert on August 2, at Confederation Park in Ottawa. The event is put on annually by the Sons of Scotland Pipe Band.

“We are very excited to be competing at the North American Championships, and are very thankful to the organizers of B In The Park for the invitation to perform in concert,” David Hilder, Triumph Street Pipe-Major.

Triumph Street has been in the news frequently since the end of the 2006 season, with the band essentially gaining the entire Robert Malcolm Memorial II Pipe Band after RMM2 was dissolved by its parent Simon Fraser University Pipe Band organization.

The Grade 2 pipe band competition at Maxville is one of the most highly contested events of the day, with as many as 19 bands competing in recent years. The winning Grade 2 band in 2006, the Fredericton Society of St. Andrew Pipe Band, now competes in Grade 1.

  1. Gee, I wonder how the world champions in grade 2 (for all intensive purposes, this is the same RMM band.) will do in grade 2 at Maxville this year? I am sure the bookies wont even touch this one, as they will end up going broke !

  2. They can’t/won’t do that, because there are reciprocity agreements between associations, as part of ANAPBA, relating to respecting the grading decisions of other regional bodies.
