Default Pipe band contest 1989

Just this week I digitized some slides I took at a Highland Games in 1989.

I'm not sure which Games.

I was evidently up in the stands, and took photos of several bands from the same angle.

Prince Charles Pipe Band (San Francisco) (note the heavy hand-knit Arran hose so popular then)



Los Angeles Police Pipe Band



Cabar Feidh Pipe Band (Pipe Major is Gold Medalist Jimmy McColl)



House Of Scotland Pipe Band



Nicholson Pipes & Drums (interesting to see a band still wearing spats and horsehair sporrans)



I don't remember what band this was- any help would be appreciated. (No hats!)



I don't remember this one either



Note that no band is wearing waistcoats sans jackets, the modern pipe band standard.
