The band did its usual tune-up upon arrival in Pitlochry, and paraded down the main street. Photos of the parade indicate how the section for supporters, who followed the band, quickly disintegrated as the parade proceeded along the street.
The band and supporters then had a snack and dispersed for some free time in the town. Some band members remained together and played at various centres and monuments. I found a spot to sit in a park while Pat did some shopping after we visited a pub across the street. No snacks were served in the pub after noon. I lost my appetite trying to locate a place that served a simple sandwich without having to retrace my steps and walk in circles. I returned to the end of the street where band members were eating fish and chips with beer at another pub, and Pat showed up shortly after.
We returned to the assembly point, and marched to the field for lunch in a tent. This was followed by photographs of the band and a practice of a new formation before the main event later in the day.
