Friday 15th and Saturday 16th August saw our annual pilgrimage westbound along the M8 to Glasgow Green for the World Pipe Band Championships. Following the introduction of a 2 day event in 2013 this years event retained a 2 day approach but this time was split over Friday and Saturday rather than the Saturday/Sunday of the year before.
This meant the Grade 1 band had a fairly busy day on Friday with 2 qualifying events including both an MSR and a medley. With the Grade 1 bands split into two separate heats, Boghall were up against a number of top bands including previous winners Simon Fraser University and current European Champions, Inveraray and District. Despite facing such stiff competition and in some challenging weather conditions the band produced two great runs to win both qualifying sections and thus gaining entry to Saturday’s final, taking four 1st places for piping in the process.
