Only 1 Grade1?

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

The Toronto Po­lice Pipe Band may have an easy job win­ning the North Amer­i­can Pipe Band Cham­pi­onship at this year’s High­land Games. It looks like they are the only band reg­is­tered to com­pete at the Grade 1 level.

Two other Grade 1 bands – the 78th Fraser High­landers and the Peel Re­gional Po­lice Band – are plan­ning to com­pete in at a num­ber of Games in Scot­land rather than Maxville.

The Grade 1 Ot­tawa Po­lice Ser­vice Pipe Band is search­ing for a new lead drum­mer. It will not at­tend the Games ei­ther .

The 78th High­lander (Hal­i­fax Citadel) can only af­ford to com­pete at Mar­itimes- based events this year while other groups based in Bri­tish Columbia are un­will­ing to make the 4,300- kilo­me­tre jour­ney just to com­pete at the Glengarry High­land Games.
