Pikes Peak Highlanders
We met a wonderful person today, Bonifacio Duran. He's the shortest person in the picture above. Boni is a member of the Pikes Peak Highlanders and a delightful person.
The Highlanders were founded here in Colorado Springs in 1985 by Royal Canadian Air Force (RACF) Major Bob Tracy. We have always been proud and honored that the Royal Canadian Air Force is a part of Norad here in the Springs.
What I didn't know was that we have the pipes, drums and color guard of the Highlanders.
The pipers wear the Prince Charles Edward Stewart tartan and the drummers wear the legendary tartan of the 1st BN Black Watch.
They have recorded a cd which will be available July 1st. If you want to know more about the Pikes Peak Highlanders here is a link to their website www.pikespeakhighlanders.org
It made our day meeting Boni :)
