2005 Winnipeg Scottish Festival Grade IV SM-6/8 2nd place [this was a good reason, we TOTALLY forgot to bring in the trophies from last year, so it made things easier!]
2006 Winnipeg Scottish Festival Grade IV QMM 4th – See SM-6/8… not much changed. The weird thing was they keep saying our Fs were pretty sharp, and I totally thought it was TOO flat. But that’s just me I guess. I guess I don’t know what I talk about.
2006 Winnipeg Scottish Festival Grade IV SM-6/8 4th – Listening to the tape you could hear Al yell “OH CHRIST” as we just started. Also, there was no way we were going to be in the standings after losing their trophy.
2006 Winnipeg Scottish Festival Grade IV Medley 3rd – Not bad.. we sounded pretty good there. A solid set of tunes that couldnt’ be beat [unless you played better, which 2 other bands did]. On the whole, the other bands were AMAZING. They had totally outplayed us and had really raised the bar.
2007 Winnipeg Scottish Festival Grade IV QMM 2nd – We sounded pretty good. We tweaked it a fair bit this year to be a little simpler, flowing easier. Then we heard a competitor, and thought “what a good grade III band” and then it turns out to be a grade IV… but cool, we got 2nd
2007 Winnipeg Scottish Festival Grade IV SM-6/8 4th – We played ok… Everybody played, so that meant more chances of error, and we missed a few notes here and there. But we, still did ok. 4th is respectable.
2007 Winnipeg Scottish Festival Grade IV Medley 3rd – We made a pretty sweet set for this one. But there were just amazing players out there, so I think we fared well.
