Pipe Band competes in the Amanzimtoti Highland Gathering

The Pipe Band traveled to KZN recently to compete in the Amanzimtoti Highland Gathering which was the first band competition since 2019. The band put in a lot of work leading up to the Saturday band contest, placing 4th in the novice juvenile division and 6th in the open grade 4 division.
The solo contests were held on Sunday 1st May where a lot of knowledge was gained by competing individually, with notable performances from:
Daniel Cotton 2nd U21 MSR and 3rd Open Silver Piobaireachd
Chris Pretorius 6th U21 MSR
Douglas Plaatjie 4th Junior Bass drumming
Laza Mnotonintshi 6th Junior Snare Drumming MSR
Tristan Ssekimpi 7th Junior Snare Drumming MSR
A lot of valuable experience was gained over the course of the 5 days which will bode well for the up-and-coming competitions later this term.
