Bagpipes and drums  Knockout competition this Friday Nov 9th, at Scottish Cultural Centre

Imagine bagpipes and drums playing a game of survivor.  Going against each other in immunity elimination challenges, until only one bagpiper and one drummer are left standing.

This information comes to me from Ron Macleod, Chair of the SFU Scottish Cultural Studies Program.

Greetings, the following will be of interest to those who enjoy piping.
