Thanks to Pam Ward for sending in this photo of
Thunder Bay Police Pipe Band with Jordan Staal and
the Stanley Cup.
The Thunder Bay Police Pipe Band is a small band
made up of mostly senior citizens who have a great
time and get together for the love of the bagpipe. They
are always looking for new members and have a few
highschool students that play with them as well.
They have very active summers playing at many city
wide functions as well as a few out of town trips to the
US. They are presently fund raising in hopes of going
to Scotland Aug 2010.
We also received an article forwarded from Eileen
Crawford about the Pipe Band of the 16th Battalion.
The 16th Canadian Scottish Regiment fashioned a
proud and enviable record from the trenches in WW1.
William Macgregor who came to Canada with his
family as a young lad and Champion Highland Dancer
was a Piper in the 16th Canadian Scottish Regiment.
He was Pipe Major of Regina Pipe Band and the
Militia Pipe Band of the Canadian Military District
No.12 Pipe Band following his return to Regina, SK
after the War.

Here are some current reviews:
"I found they really help with cutoffs, as well as starting
in, much easier to strike in as all the air stays in the
bag till you hit it."
"I often use these reeds in my Sinclair chanter, and
they are great. They have good life to them."
