The Oregon National Guard Reserve Pipe Band is now called The Oregon State Defense Forces Pipe Band.

I am in this photo, as is my future wife (the blonde dancer standing on the far left). I was in the middle of an overly-long process of getting a BSc. at the time in Eugene, Oregon.

The members were great, and the atmosphere was family-safe, with lots of married couples and gentle geezers in the ranks, and several competitive pipers as well.

That band does nothing now....or almost. A few friends of mine and I are makeing/remaking the band. It is going to be based out of Portland.
It is wierd how humans have such close connections so far around the world.
