We are the Champions!

This year we won the Grade 3 at the North American Pipeband Championship at the Glengarry Highland Games (in Maxville). We are the Toronto Police Pipe Band (TPPB) Grade 3 lead by Pipe Major Brian Urkosky. We are seen marching up to the line and then playing our medley: “At Long Last” (march), “Soenaidh’s Tune” (strathspey), “The Grey Bob” (reel), “The Mermaid” (slow air) , “Daniel Michael Coleman’s Father’s Fancy” (jig), “The Rock and the Wee Pickle Tow” (jig), and “Mark Sheridan’s Jig” and “Mark Sheridan” (hornpipe).

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything here. It seems I’m too busy to write anything useful. Lots has happened in the last little while: I’ve joined a new bagpipe band (Toronto Police Grade III), we bought a new car, and we’ve recently returned from a wonderful vacation/honeymoon.
I’m in the process of uploading some pics from the honeymoon, but it’s going to take a while, at last count we had something like 1000 photos to go through!
