Our plan is to have solo pipers play 11 verses of "Amazing Grace" at the memorial crosses in front of Bldg. 11. For the 12th and final verse, we will all play for our fallen friend and bandmate, Chris Rapp. We will then form a traditional band circle--leaving a "missing man" next to the Pipe Major--and perform a few of Chris' favorite tunes. The performance will last about 15 minutes. All are welcome to attend.”
