Re: best/most comfortable Ghillie Brogues

But more imporant, are they comfortable?

I'm seriously considering getting a pair made by Avriel, and would appreciate first hand observations on them.:wave:

Re: Drums in Glasgow Airport

Why not ask one or two of your band mates to take them home for you? Buy them a bottle of scotch as a thank you for the favour.

Another thing to think about - when our band went over, we made...

Re: Seating at Worlds

You're around the circle, so it's ALL good.

However, Bank A is at the top of the circle, so you're closest to the pipes, C is closer to the drum corps bit of the circle, so you may want to take...

Re: instructor professionalism

It's only a standard inasmuch as some people work well with yellers and others work well with the more supportive type.

Personally, I don't do well with the yelling/knuckle scraper types.

Re: Ontario Solo Piping Competition

Good choice Miss Andrews!

You're going to have enough to focus on.

If you can, at least try to tap you foot to keep on the beat.

I'll be there, and will be cheering you on :wave:
