Videos: Ottawa Police lays down the gauntlet at Kingston

Kingston, Ontario – May 23, 2015 – The sun shone brightly but temperatures reached only 14 degrees and winds were gusty making it a test of endurance at the annual Kingston Scottish Festival, where the Ottawa Police Services Pipe Band won its first outdoor event as a Grade 1 band against three other more established bands. The Kingston games are only partially sanctioned by the PPBSO, with just the solo events counting towards championship points. But the event used PPBSO certified judges and stewards for the bands.
