The band finished with a very creditable 5th place in the 2nd section at this years Scottish Championships, a result that leaves us as the Borders highest rated band.
Playing off the No 6 draw the band took to the stage in good spirits after recruiting well with the the returning Steven Clinton on bumper Euph and Alex Lewis on Rep.
As ever MD Philip Rosier had prepared the band well and it showed with the band playing well with great solo contributions from Flugal player Stuart Black, Solo cornet Rob Hume and Eb Bass player Helen Orde.
