Peel Police take Grade 2 at Cambridge

Cambridge, Ontario – July 21, 2018 – A mostly sunny day warmed the annual Cambridge Highland Games, about an hour west of the city of Toronto, and a few threatening early afternoon clouds produced no rain, where the Peel Regional Police won the two-band Grade 2 competition. The organization’s new Grade 5 band took that competition. Only the 78th Fraser Highlanders played in the Grade 1 band event.

In the solo piping, Ian K. MacDonald was the overall winner of the Professional grade, placing first in all four events, while Gavin Mackay took Amateur Piper of the Day honours. Kyle Wardell was Professional Snare Drummer of the Day, and James Kirkwood Amateur Snare Drummer of the Day.
