I test a new way to update this page

Rather an unusual post this time – I’m testing a new way to update this page.  Assuming that it works, you will be reading about the Enumclaw games last weekend.

My band traveled to Washington State (the Tacoma area) last weekend to compete against some big hitters in the piping neighborhood.  Although the competition took place in the U.S., it is administered by the BC association, so my band ended up competing against a bunch of aver-achieving Canadians.

Considering that, they did pretty well (6th out of 8) and plan to return next year, presumably with the newly-minted Grade 4 band in tow.

  1. I think there were some within the band who were disappointed by the result, feeling so without realizing exactly how good some of the bands are in BC. There’s a lot to be said for competing and doing well against some of those bands and everyone should be proud of the result as well as the break down, which the drum corps was pretty strong in one of the circles. Hopefully nobody feels their hard work has been in vain, but realizes that there will always be room for improvement.

  2. Was the disappointment you mention perhaps a first reaction at the games, Justin? Andrew chatted about the results last Thursday after band practice and he seemed quite pleased overall. I don’t think he’s under any illusions about the quality of Grade 3 overall in the BC organization. In any case, it seemed to me that he’s ready to take on Pleasanton, and looking forward to going back to Enumclaw next year. TS sounded good – I listened on your Facebook page and on YouTube.
