Kin­tyre’s pip­ing prow­ess re­warded at Cowal Gath­er­ing

Campbeltown Courier - - FEATURE -

GLENGARRIES flew into the sky as Kin­tyre Schools Pipe Band (KSPB) cel­e­brated their suc­cess at Cowal High­land Gath­er­ing.

KSPB ended 2017’s com­pet­i­tive sea­son in style last Satur­day, al­most sweep­ing the board with a first and a sec­ond.

The 3A band came first in their com­pe­ti­tion while the novice ju­ve­nile band gained sec­ond place in their sec­tion. The novice ju­ve­nile band was also awarded the best turned-out band on the park.

Cowal marked the end of the com­pet­i­tive sea­son for KSPB, who are now on their an­nual break for the next few weeks. Fol­low­ing that, they will be­gin their prac­tises and fund-rais­ing events in prepa­ra­tion for next sea­son’s com­pe­ti­tions.

Look out for the bands tak­ing part in the Re­mem­brance Day pa­rade and at the switch­ing-on of the Christ­mas lights in Camp­bel­town, both in Novem­ber.

The de­light on the faces of all the young pipers could be seen as they were pho­tographed with their sil­ver­ware af­ter the re­sults had been an­nounced, and be­fore they trav­elled back home.

The tri­umphant KSPB mem­bers with their sil­ver­ware.
