13 August 2005 - Glasgow, Scotland

The second Saturday in August is The Day and the World's Pipe Band Championship results are in. Not much in the way of surprizes today. All the usual suspects are in the top half dozen finishers. This is the order this year for the Grade One bands:

1. House of Edgar - Shotts and Dykehead
2. Field Marshal Montgomery
3. Simon Fraser University
4. Strathclyde Police
5. St. Lawrence O'Toole
6. 78th Fraser Highlanders
7. Scottish Power
8. Boghall and Bathgate Calendonia

You can find the complete results on the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association's web page if you have the patience to navigate through their needlessly complex registration bumpf.
