It was an unexpected finish in Scotland for the SFU Pipe Band and Pipe Sergeant and Langley resident Jack Lee.
Despite being led by the confidence of the new pipe major, Alan Bevan, the band placed seventh in its run against 22 of the worldâ€™s best pipe bands.
The competition was held the weekend of Aug. 15 in Glasgow, Scotland.
Placing seventh was unexpected for the band that having placed fourth in 2013 and has finished in the top three 20 times, including six firsts.
A better finish came about for the Robert Malcolm Memorial (RMM) novice juvenile band, which placed fifth in a field of 28 entries.
Langley resident Scott Robertson, a drum instructor for the RMM band, posted on Facebook, â€œI am the proudest drum instructor on the field.â€
Some of the members of the RMM band are as young as 10 years old.
