Spirit of Ontario Pipe Band
St. Andrews Pipes & Drums, Guelph Pipe Band and 121 Red Arrows Air Cadet Squadron are collaborating to field a Grade 5 Contest band this summer. This provides a unique opportunity for the three bands to pool their resources and support members who might be interested in trying band competition for the first time. In the spirit of collaboration, members from their respective bands will wear their own band uniform.
The 3 bands wanted to go out on the field with a fun and unique name that reflects the spirit of collaboration, so they hosted a competition.
As was announced at Practice on Sunday March 31, 2019, the winner of the St. Andrews sponsored Grade 5 band naming contest was:
Aiden Maher who will be receiving a cheque from St. Andrews Pipes & Drums, Mississauga. He suggested the band name "The Spirit of Ontario Pipe Band" which received the most votes from the Grade 5 players.
We are SO proud to announce that Spirit of Ontario Pipe Band placed 2nd out of 7, in our very 1st Grade-5 Competition. Well done everyone !!!
