They vids are great and the setting looks lovely. Never seen a judge dressed like that before.

Hey thanks for that Tommy, always great to see what happens the other side of the water, and listen to bands that you would not normally even hear of.

Not bad at all. It will be even better when you play Caberfeidh with the midsection scores Sandy got from an "outside resource." :bg:

I can't wait to hear them,...I'll ask him about them next Monday. Caberfeidh's my favorite selection,...the pipers don't like it, but we do, it's a fun score to play.

Mitch, at my age I've learned to shy away from the camera,....I'm hiding behind the bass drummer.

When I asked you all about what you thought, I didn't mean our band,...I meant about Westminster and how awesome they are. I re-read my original post and thought; "Man,..that sounds kinda stuck-up."
We made enough mistakes that I really had to think about posting the link, but I thought about how much I'd love to see videos of you guys and your bands, and decided to post them anyhow.

Oh,...and Mary, the judge was on a flight with our lead tip and the flights got all screwed up,....I'm assuming they lost some of her luggage. The two of them were lucky to have even made it to the games.

Westminster had some help getting ready to compete. One of their instructors, a drummer, marched off with them at Alma - in the hodge-podge of kilts they had in May, its not like one more kilt would stick out, although the waistcoat certainly was a give-away. :whistle:

Mitch knows him. He and his brother are leaving their current band to play with a band in Toronto.

We'll see about next year, eh? Come up to Maxville. Its worth the trip.

Thanks I'd love to,.....and as for drumline, I know all about it,... Westminster's from right here in town, a buddy of mine is in the snare line.
