FMM-logoGlasgow – August 16, 2014 – Field Marshal Montgomery were crowned 2014 World Champions following two days of competition at Glasgow Green against 22 other bands from around the globe. Contestants on the final day of competition had to deal with at times extremely difficult weather, but thankfully nothing like the situation that had been forecasted. With Grade 1 finishing before 3:30 pm, enough time was available to hold the Grade 2 final in the main arena, to the enjoyment of those on the park and the many watching the streamed broadcast via the BBC. The announcement of all final results were not complete until nearly 8 pm.

TIP OF THE DAY
Mid-section plares: Always carry two pairs of mallets, keeping the spare set bone-dry.

Bad weather can’t be avoided, poor preparation for the conditions can.
