WORLD PIPE BAND CHAMPIONSHIPS 2010 : GLASGOW GREEN

August 14th 2010

St.Laurence O'Toole - World Champions 2010 !!!!!!!!!

St.Laurence O'Toole of Dublin won the 2010 World Pipe Band Championship under dry and relatively warm weather at a very crowded Glasgow Green.

It was the first World title for SLOT and the first time in more than 10 years that a band other than SFU, Field Marshal Montgomery and Shotts & Dykehead did not take the title.

SLOT also won the drumming.

The RSPBA announced Simon Fraser University as being fourth in Grade 1, but a compilers' error appeared to reveal that the band was actually third, finishing ahead of Boghall & Bathgate on ensemble preference, according to RSPBA rule 3.84.

The association later admitted the error and posted an apology to the band impacted.

Full summary details for all grades can be found on the RSPBA website - MSR and Medley

A great result for the band considering the heavy rain showers just before we were due to play - and with just twenty minutes to set up when the sun decided to reappear ;-)

Drawing our number two set - Lord Alexander Kennedy, Islay Ball and Mrs. MacPherson Of Inveran - the band gave a very solid performance to take the overall title.

The drum corp also having an excellent performance to win the drumming prize.
