Looks like all the guys were right about an intesting competition between Dartmouth and The College Of Piping. Two victories for the College so far.

I guess everyone was wrong in predicting Dartmouth in winning grade 4 at Maxville!

I think that both bands are sounding really good and it's still a tight contest so it should be an interesting season. It's all round a good year for bands in the maritimes the standard is higher than it's ever been for all grades.

That's true. I guess everyones done well to improve this year. You've got to admit though... It is a little funny to see a band come out of nowhere like the College of Piping did. Nothing like a little healthy competition to bring out the potential in two great bands. Still, if I were Dartmouth, I'd be eatting my vegetables! Watch out!!

I hear it has been a very exciting contest the last couple of weekends. I heard drumming has been the big improvement at the college of piping. Reports are that Jeremy White is really whipped the corps into shape. In piping I am told that Dartmouth has the edge not losing yet in piping to the college. I also hear the guy who runs the college has judged every contest so far and has been giving the college questionalble favour in ensemble. Any thoughts?

Keith,

Are you questioning Scott MacAulay's integrity as a judge? By the way, upon what are you basing the decision that he made as being "questionable"? Did you hear the contests? Unless it is from someone as knowledgeable as Scott MacAulay, I would hesitate before posting such a "questionable" comment!

People will always question who favors who in a situation like that. I can see how some may view it as being unfair, but if those people really believe that it is, then this is something that should be dealt with before the games and not after the result. I know that Scott has judged his band in previous years, and not too much was made of it.
All that aside.....2 good bands
As for Jeremy, ya, he's done a great job...but it doesn't take away from being a HUGE jerk.
