Updated: Chatham goes to SL78FH

Chatham, Ontario – July 12, 2008 – The first Grade 1 Champion Supreme event of the Ontario season was won by the Scottish Lion-78th Fraser Highlanders of Toronto, taking the medley contest against two other bands. It was the first contest for the Windsor Police Pipe Band, which finished third, behind the Peel Regional Police. After the Pipers & Pipe Band Society granted a request to reduce the medley submission requirement to own-choice, the Toronto Police decided not to compete at the event, to the disappointment of those who looked forward to hearing the band’s much-discussed selection, “Variations on a Theme of Good Intentions.” Weather was mainly overcast, hot and humid, with temperatures around 32 degrees Celsius.
