Fresh from their band trip to Cosa Misa, California to compete at the annual ScotsFest USS Highland Games, the Dowco Triumph Street Pipe Band is now gearing up for the BC spring and summer competition season and their upcoming trip to Glasgow, Scotland for another crack at the world championship title. This is a band that is on the rise, cracking the top 10 last year with a ninth place world finish. The golden ring is within sight, and it would glorious for another great BC pipe band to capture the world trophy in competitive pipe band competition.
However, getting to Scotland each year from Vancouver is an expensive proposition. It can cost up to $100,000 for this trip alone, and much of those costs are borne by the pipers, drummers and their families.Â This year the band is appealing to supporters of great highland piping and drumming to help get the band overseas once again.
Please go to the this website if you are interested in helping out.Â Every contribution is welcome and goes towards supporting the highest level of piping and drumming in British Columbia, and the world.
