78th Fraser Highlanders competing at Cobourg.

Cobourg, Ontario – June 21, 2014 – The 78th Fraser Highlanders celebrated the first official day of summer with a convincing win at the Cobourg Highland Games, under spectacular weather on the shores of Lake Ontario. The Grade 1 challenge that the Grade 2 Ottawa Police Service Pipe Band presented the week before in the MSR competition at Georgetown didn’t really materialize in the Cobourg Grade 1 Medley event. Ian K. MacDonald was the Professional Piper of the Day, while Zack Miller was Professional Drummer of the Day.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: Blow your drones without the pipe chanter for a few minutes when you first take your pipes out of the box. Initially, the blades on your pipe chanter reed and the tongues on your drone reeds will be dry (not pliable), which will make the chanter reed stiff and often too much for the drone reeds – causing them to shut off. The warm air that is blown through the drone reeds will make the tongues more pliable and receptive to handling the strength of the pipe chanter. This applies to synthetic and cane drone reeds.
