On Saturday 6th December 2014 the newly established City of Whitehorse Pipe Band made their first outing at the Daylesford Highland Gathering.
The band was formed 6 months prior by Former Clan Gregor Pipe Band Pipe-Major George Shepherd. Leading drummer is former Strathclyde Police Pipe Band/Boghall & Bathgate Caledonia member and owner of Go Drumming, Olav Goud.
The bands main aim was to play two solid sets and see how most of the young/new members would perform. With weather playing a bit of havoc, the band managed to put down two solid performances, which resulted in winning the overall Grade 2 title.
The City of Whitehorse Drum corps is currently being sponsored by Go Drumming and Proline sticks. With a corps mainly consisting of players under the age of 25 years Olav is trying to establish a solid young corps that will grow in experience and compete at the highest level. With the first competition under their belt, the band took a festive break.
The snare drummers have already been back at it, with a snare practice in Adelaide. This practice saw two new drummers join the corps who have effortlessly manage to slot in.
