Our bands have been busy recently.
Our Grade 4 band made their 2022 competition debut at the San Diego Scottish Games in Vista, CA last month. They took second place out of three bands that played that day. Many of the members were making their competition debut, very proud of them and the hard work they put in to making this happen.
Our Grade 3 band traveled up to Monterey for the Monterey Scottish Games and Celtic Festival last weekend. The band placed second in the Medley and third in the MSR. We enjoyed playing for the Drum Major contest both days, the Roddy MacKay Memorial Marching & Deportment Parade contest, and the famous Monterey Ceilidh. We are looking forward to making regular trips back to Monterey.
