Ogden Indoor gets charitable

Calgary, Alberta – May 6, 2017 – Alberta’s 2017 pipe band season kicked off this weekend with the annual Ogden Indoor competition attracting a small entry of bands and soloists from throughout the province. Rocky Mountain of Calgary won the Grade 2 band MSR contest, and both Grade 2 bands also played their medley selections for adjudication only. For the second year in a row, in lieu of entry fees, competitors were asked to bring donations for the local Veterans Food-bank. An estimated 160 pounds of food and more than $200 was donated on the day.
