Scotland At last

Landed safely. Sorry I haven’t written, but the internet took a while to connect.

First competition was Saturday at North Berwick. The band came in 12 out of 16 bands. Good start to the week. Adrenaline took advantage and we played our pieces at breakneck speed. We’ll get it under control for the next competiton.

The day was beautiful except for the last two haours when a storm came in with hail and heavy rain. We didn’t mind as they called off the parade through town after the competition and we were able to head home early. 

Beautiful scenery hear on the home land.

How the deck is stacked in Scotland for the JPB. Good draws!
