Canmore, Alberta – September 6, 2009 – The City of Regina Pipe Band came back to win the Grade 2 contest at the scenic Canmore Highland Games after narrowly losing the previous day’s competition at the Calgary Games. Despite the predictions for bad weather, weather was mostly sunny skies, with a huge crowd attending.
