Dowco Triumph Street nipping at SFU’s heels

SFU-logo-07Bellingham, Washington – June 4, 2016 – Dowco Triumph Street came as close as the band has come this year to beating Vancouver rivals Simon Fraser University in an outdoor Grade 1 competition, losing the MSR event at the Bellingham Games on ensemble preference, with two firsts in piping. The close call comes on the brink of Dowco Triumph Street’s journey to compete in the UK Pipe Band Championships at Belfast on June 11th, which also happens to be an MSR event. SFU won the medley event with straight firsts and took the overall prize. In the Open solo piping, Andrew Lee was overall best and Grant Maxwell and Andrew Miller split the two-contestant Open solo snare prizes.
