Published: September 05, 2016

Pleasanton, California – September 3-4, 2016 – The 151st annual Scottish Highland Gathering & Games were held over two at the Alameda County Fairgrounds near San Francisco, and Dowco Triumph Street won both Grade 1 events. Contestants in that grade were restricted to eight pipers, three snares, three tenors and a bass. Bands that finished first in their grade at the 2015 event were permitted to play up a grade, and, of note, the Grade 2 Prince Charles Pipe Band was awarded a first in drumming in the Grade 1 medley by drumming judge and former Triumph Street lead-drummer Andre Tessier.
