College took part in three band events namely the Slow to Quick March, The March Strathspey Reel and the Medley Selection. We were placed fourth overall in the band competition. A pleasing achievement considering we were competing against adult pipe bands.
We could not have achieved these results without our novice tenor section that consisted of Cleo Ntuthu and Emily Campbell. They did extraordinarily well under pressured circumstances at their first gathering.
There were also solo piping and drumming events at this gathering the most notable result of which was Tim McWilliams’s 3rd place in the Under-21 snare drumming, and Zak Schlebusch’s 3rd place in the under-21 Jig and Hornpipe.
Thank you to Mr Chris Terry (OA) for his expert assistance in tuning the band and thanks to Pipe Major Callum Southey for his fine leadership of the band.
