Peel Police up to challenge at Cobourg

Cobourg,Ontario – June 15,2019 – The Peel Regional Police won the Grade 2 competition at the annual Cobourg Highland Games with straight firsts against two other Grade 2 bands in the first medley contest of the year in the grade. The only Grade 1 band was the 78th Fraser Highlanders. The Peel Police played in the event for sheets from the judges.

Ian K. MacDonald was the overall winner in the Professional solo piping. Iain Bell won both Professional Solo Snare events. Weather was ugly, with cool temperatures, high winds and intermittent rain.
