Band News

It was decided this fall that with the departure of many members of the grade 3 band that the best thing for the band would be to go from grade 3 to grade 4. Both Ross Brown and Scott Nicholson have stepped down from pipe major and lead drummer roles and these are now being taken over by Scott Bell and Chris Bell. The move to grade 4 has allowed many of our grade 5 members to move up to the new band. They are already hard at work at new music and are looking forward to a great year!

The grade 5 band is going strong again this year and we are excited to see many new faces as well as lots of returning ones! All grade 5 band members who wish to try out for the grade 4 band are welcome to but they must attend both grade 5 and grade 4 band practices until the end of October.

Peter Barbier has taken on the role of band manager. The new executive will be elected at the next AGM on October 15.
