Aussie Championships

The 2012 Australian Pipe Band Championships were held in Ballarat, 70 miles north-west of Melbourne over the weekend of Friday 6th – Sunday 8th April. The Championships are held on a biannual basis and as such this was the first opportunity for Boghall drummer Olav Goud to lead his City of Adelaide drum corps at a National Championship since moving to Australia in early 2011. Again we had a good overall representation of our Southern Hemisphere contingent with Scott Birrell (sporting an excellent moustache) also competing with Olav’s corps and Liam Kernaghan competing with the University of Ballarat.
