Farewell to 2015

Posted by Ryan Henderson on December 24, 2015 at 6:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello Folks

Year 2015 has come and gone and we as a band are proud to say its been a huge success. Though out the year we made a number of changes from our competition repertoire, to an extra competition (first place), and moving our annual fund raising dinner to the fall. As always we paid our respect to the men and women that fought for our freedom by preforming at the 2015 Rememberance Day Ceremony at Harbour Station and there was true emotion felt in that room that day. We also had a lot of fun as always playing at all of the other venues we visited afterwards.

The band played hard and celebrated harder as the year comes to a close. I think its safe to say that we put up a good fight and now we can settle down with some egg nog and reflect on what we have accomplished. As always we will be back in the new year with hot chanters and pads, working at our next master piece for 2016. 

We would love to thank everyone that made 2015 a great success and we will see you again for another round as always in the new year.

Hello Fan's

This years competition season is off to a good start. June 20th Moncton Highland Games closed with the Lions taking 3rd place overall for the grade 4 Medley as well as the MSR. Those first scores were just enough for us to make some adjustments for Pugwash Gathering of the Clans, where we brought home first place for the grade 4 MSR on New Scotland's soil.

There's no time to rest our sticks and chanters yet..... There is always room for improvement and we are aiming to take home the title on home soil as the NewBrunswick Highland game grow near. Plenty  of photos and video coming in the near future.

The Band is in the final stages of preparing for our historic return to the competition arena in this year's NB Highland Games in Fredericton. This will be an exciting weekend for all SLCPB members some of whom will compete for the first time ever! A lot of effort has gone into perfecting both the musical and marching drill aspects of our march medley. We are hoping to achieve a solid performance (good weather wouldn't hurt either) -- come cheer us on!


See you on the field July 28!
