Rocky Mountain takes Grade 2 at Maxville

Maxville, Ontario – August 5, 2017 – It was a North American Championship with a reduced entry due to it being close to the World Pipe Band Championships, but there was still a robust Grade 2 competition and other grades were well-entered. The Toronto Police were the only Grade 1 band, and Rocky Mountain of Calgary won the Grade 2 competition against five other contestants. Weather was cool and overcast, with heavy rain and high winds hitting some bands in the afternoon. Ian K. MacDonald was the Professional Piper of the Day. It was the 70th anniversary year of the Glengarry Highland Games, and was the final competition appearance in Canada by Bill Livingstone after an illustrious career.
