The City of Regina Pipe Band was one of the very first pipe bands or piping organizations to have a web site, back in 1993-94. At that time. we had a very basic page or two on the "Great Plains Free Net," which was a community-run, volunteer-based service that worked very hard to give people the tools and skills to make use of the internet. The only other piping web site that I was aware of at that time was the SFU Pipe Band web site, which [as far as we know] the first pipe band web site. That effort was organized and maintained by the computer department at SFU.
As the band comes up to its 20th anniversary, there is a lot to look back on, and we hope that band members, former members, friends and fellow enthusiasts will enjoy the new site. One of the features that we are attempting to have is a comprehensive gallery of band photos through the years, and eventually, information on each photo, and the people in them. There will be lots to come back and see, so please visit often!
There will be lots to watch for on the new web site. The Mid-Winter Celtic Festival will be here before we know it, along with some new items in the band store, a new season of contests and performances, and we think our 4th band trip to Scotland this summer.
