Glasgow Green, Glasgow
August 17 - 18
In 2011 I competed with the Heidelberg & District Pipes and Drums at the World Pipe Band Championships
(click here for pictures, videos, and info). My family and  I returned in 2013 to watch the best Grade 1 bands
compete for the world title. For the first time ever the championships were held over two days. We only
went to Glasgow Green on Sunday, August 18, to watch the twelve Grade 1 bands which qualified the
day prior compete for the highly coveted title. For the third year in a row (2011, 2012, and 2013) my
favorite band, Field Marshal Montgomery, became Grade 1 World Champions.
