I love doing this stuff. I have not been able to make FDIC for the last 2 years and this was a great trip. I was able to get some good training, camaraderie with my brothers and play the pipes!! I acutally played on the way to FDIC as well. I met some brothers from Texas and they asked me to play on the way into Indy. Love it!! Thanks for all the positive comments, go to your local pipe band if you are interested and learn to play, FTM-PTB-KTF-EGH...

The pipe-playing on the plane was not just a cool thing to hear and see, but it probably dissolved some of the stress of the traveling businessmen and other frequent or stressed flyers--got 'em to remember the small, great things about life. What an awesome thing to do!
