Another great day at the Sacramento Highland Games! The band placed 2nd in our grade in a field of 8 bands. A shout out to the Sacramento Firefighter Pipe Band for placing 1st today! We actually tied with them but Sac. won with the preference given to the ensemble judge who scored them a point higher. Another shout out to the San Francisco Irish Pipe Band who placed 3rd.
Piper Rick Hood took home a gold medal in piobaireached in his second outing after promoting to Grade 3 . Strong work in a large field of competitors!
The band also received the "Best Pipe Band in Competition" award from the games!
Thanks to everyone who came out to support us. It was great to see so many CAL FIRE faces and meet some prospective students.
Pictures to follow but it is too late tonight.
Cheers from a very proud Pipe Major!
