The band headed for Dunoon on the Cowal Peninsula on Saturday 31st August for the last RSPBA Major Championship of the 2013 season and for what will be the last time that this gathering will hold a competition of ‘Major’ status.
It was the Medley discipline for Grade 1 in this competition and the band’s No.1 Medley was drawn on the line for them to play.
Congratulations to the winners - Field Marshall Montgomery for lifting the coveted Argyll Shield and for also making 2013 a Grand Slam year for them.
The Grade 1 top 6 prize winners were as follows:
1st Field Marshal Montgomery – Northern Ireland
2nd Boghall & Bathgate Caledonia – Scotland
3rd ScottishPower – Scotland
4th St Lawrence O’ Toole – Eire
5th Inveraray & District – Scotland
6th Shotts & Dykehead Caledonia – Scotland
Also in the prize lists competing in the Adult Drum Majors competition was our very own Billy Jordan who finished in 4th place overall. Well done!
