The Pirate Brigade had another outstanding performance at the Sound of Gold Marching Championships this past Saturday, October 26 in Waycross.
They once again earned a superior rating in all categories including band, drum major, colorguard, drumline and pit percussion.
The band and colorguard won best in class AAA. The band came in fourth overall out of all bands there. Dating back to last year, this makes the fifth consecutive contest the band has won best in class.
