Boghall Drummers finish 2012 on a high!

Saturday 20th October saw the pinnacle of the solo drumming calendar with both the World Solo Drumming Championships and the International Juvenile Solo Tenor Drumming Contest taking place at the Glasgow Caledonian University. Both events saw great representation from the band with a total of 20 entries across the 5 separate contests. There were some fantastic results all round, with Kerr McQuillan winning the Juvenile Section 1 Tenor Contest, Joanna Fairbairn winning the Juvenile Section 2 Tenor Contest and Craig Brown finishing 9th in the adult final. L/D Gordon Brown also showed great dedication by competing on the same day that he discharged himself from hospital following a complication from his recent illness. Unfortunately this had hampered Gordon’s preparation significantly and he was unlucky to just miss out on making the final - the first time in many years.
