2014 North American Champions!!!

The Rob Roy grade 4 pipe band has continued their fantastic competition season by taking home the grade 4 North American championship for 2014!!  On a very hot and humid day in Maxville, Ontario, Rob Roy went up against 13 others bands from Ontario, Nova Scotia, Ohio, New Jersey and Florida. After an excellent performance in competition and some nervous waiting in massed bands they were thrilled to learn that they had won! In addition to winning the overall championship the band also won best pipes and best bass. A huge congratulations to all band members, family and friends on this fantastic accomplishment!

The Rob Roy grade 5 band also competed at the Glengarry Highland Games. Although they didn’t take home the top prize they all did extremely well and for many it was their first time competing at Maxville so well done to all members!

This win means that the band has won grade 4 PPBSO champion supreme for this year as well and will be performing at the ball in November.

A huge thanks goes out to Pipe Major Scott Bell and Lead Drummer Chris Bell for all the hard work they have put in to the band this year.
