How current is this information? Revised on Sunday, Sept. 6th, 2015
Starting on Sunday, Sept. 20th, 2015...we will go back to Sundays. Our rehearsals then are usually organized to have chanter practice at 1:30 p.m. until 2:30 p.m., then we need to
get onto the pipes. We usually work until 4:30 p.m.
In SEPTEMBER, our practice location is back to the Kiowa Masonic
Lodge, located at 304 Pawnee Street (at the corner with Cheyenne St).,
one block north of Colorado Highway 86, in Kiowa, Colorado.

The reporter drove by and was astonished to see part of a pipe band practicing (if he'd been earlier, he'd seen the whole band).
it's our policy to not have a band practice on Sunday, if we're
performing on Saturday...the rationale being that our band members don't
sacrifice their whole weekend for the band.
ALWAYS CALL BEFORE COMING OUT...because schedules are always provisional and can be changed.
Call Neil at 303-332-6133 for information
or confirmation that band practice is taking place.
We will sort out how this works, probably a month at a time. Check back on this site, frequently, for more information.
What about bad weather conditions in winter?
As a matter of policy, no one should
drive if they think it's nuts to go out. Further, if there is snow
covering the road (because the snow is coming down at a fast rate), practice
is cancelled. If it turns out that we have a performance and it's
snowing (or due to be a heavy snow), I'll send out an email and start a
phone-relay: it's likely that I'd NOT have us travel to a performance or
parade. Thanks for your understanding.
The 79th is seeking recruits!
We teach beginning piping, for those who
are interested. We're also seeking persons who will portray historical
kilted (or non-kilted) infantry (riflemen) to complement our band members.
Dues are currently $35 a year ($50 for a family for a year).
