Grandfather Mountain 2013

NCSU Pipes and Drums was honored to continue the tradition of being an invited band at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in July 2013.  We dodged the raindrops on Saturday and enjoyed the early morning fog while our soloist  competed.  Congrats to all who competed and those who placed:

Pete Curry:  Grade 4 Sr Piping: 6th place piobaireachd

Ally McKinnis: Grade 3 Piping: 3rd place Strath&Reel Grade 3, 2nd Place March

Connor McKinnis: Grade 4 Jr Snare: 1st Place

Thanks to everyone who showed their support for our massed bands and afternoon performance.  We prepared to perform on Sunday but the rain just wouldn’t cooperate.  We’ll look forward to making up for it next year.
