The Fountain Trust Pipe Band traveled to Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, a neighborhood of Milwaukee, for the Milwaukee Highland Games on June 2, 2017. The band performed its brand new March, Strathspey, and Reel set which it will be performing in Scotland in 2017. The band placed third in the contest.

On the solo end, three band members performed on the day and took home prizes. Drum Major Doug Weisheit placed first in the Open Drum Major competition, piper Angus Martin placed 3rd in the Grade 1 Hornpipe/Jig and 4th in the Grade 1 MSR, and piper Chris Eller placed 4th in the Grade 4 Piobaireachd event.

Congratulations to Chicago Celtic Pipe Band for its first place finish in the MSR contest, and City of Chicago Pipe Band for its second place finish.
