The season is over (2011)

The bandsmen and women put the 2011 season to bed in fine form with a BBQ and social evening in the Glenleven Inn, Kilbarchan. The pub provided a slap up meal for all who attended. The bouncy castle was a huge success with the adults and the children who braved the bouncing mayhem. Well done to the Self Appointed Social Committee for the 2011 Awards ceremony (I can see this becoming a tradition) and to all who entertained us with their singing. We just need the lead tip to workout how to get the photos to the Websergeant and we can all laugh at the PM in his hula skirt. Thanks to all the band supporters who turned out to eat fantastic food and get drunk (It’s a hard job following a pipe band). The night finished with KPB singing Calum Kennedy in 3 part harmony.
The beer bottles are hardly away and work has begun on the tunes for next year. The Autumn quiz and the ceilidh hove into view and details will be posted here as soon as Derek gives me the info or writes a post on here himself. Cannae wait!

Arran Highland Games

The band attended the Arran Highland Games Sat 6th Aug, this is not a competition but a fun day out for KPB. A short trip by bus and boat saw us getting tuned up at Brodick harbour and then setting off on the none too arduous march to Ormodale Park. The band members played in 2 street marches and 2 massed band marches. The day was warm, chaotic and hugely enjoyable. The people of Arran made us very welcome and by the time we had to leave we were well impressed and hoping for an invite back next year
