Two consecutive weekends in Orange, CT. April 18-19 and April 25-26. We have three ex British Army NCOs coming over from Scotland to run these workshops and they will be covering everything from basic foot drill to massed bands, ceremonial, funeral drill etc.
This is a very unique opportunity for you or your band to be trained by the very best.
Please email DM Ox Gara at email@example.com or DM Tom Belyea at Edge27scot@aol.com for more info.

To any folks who may have been mulling over attending either of these workshops- now is the time to decide, and if you want to take advantage of this super opportunity, please email DM Ox Gara ASAP at Oxgara@aol.com . We are only one week away from the first workshop, and the tuitions need to be sent in to cover advance facility fees and such. We will be having a Pub Crawl in New Haven the first Saturday evening, after the workshop, and the second Saturday evening we will have a Curry Dinner/Mess Night in support of BABFA (British Army Benevolent Fund in America). Hope to see you there! :wave:

:) The workshops were a resounding success, and it has been decided to keep the current format for next year. The workshops will again be held over two consecutive weekends in Connecticut, and this time, DM Jordan will be bringing over three additional instructors. DM Andy Grant (formerly of the 1st Bn. Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and current DM of the Denny and Dunipace Pipe Band) and DM Kenny Forbes (formerly of the 1st Bn. The Black Watch and current DM of the McNaughton's Vale of Atholl Pipe Band) as well as a third instructor as yet to be announced.
As soon as dates are confirmed, they will be posted here and also in the Announcements and Drum Majors threads. Keep an eye on it so you can take advantage of this unique opportunity!
