  1. It was very nice to see the name Triumph Street” back at the top. I heard the pipe corps up close in the tuning park – lovely sound and a real sharp-looking professional group.”

  2. Edmoton and District were, until the end of the 2006 season, a Grade II Band. A self-imposed relegation to Grade III for the 2007 season certainly taints any successes they have had this year. They should never have been allowed to downgrade to Grade III.

  3. Will, do you have any idea why the Edmonton and District Pipe Band was down graded??????????? I really don’t think you do because if you did you surley would not have made that comment.
