Duncan Johnstone Memorial Contest Results (picture added)

This was a very well run contest today at the Piping Centre in Glasgow, but it was noteworthy that not many pipers waited around for the prize giving. With the sponsors in attendance along with the Johnstone family, this did not enhance proceedings. All contests were over by 6.45pm. A very big ‘well done’ to CPA Secretary Helen Wilkinson for organising things so well and ensuring the smooth running of all events.

The judges reported a very high standard of play in the B Piobaireachd final. Twenty-five played so anyone who took a prize there can be very satisfied with their effort. The same goes for the C Piobaireachd where 28 played.

The picture above shows some of the prizewinners with Cameron MacDougall (centre) the overall champion, and Mr Iain Johnstone, Duncan’s son.
In an innovative move the Competing Pipers Association, the main organisers, trialled an app to assist with stewarding and order of play. The CPA has plans to roll this out at other competitions during the season.

  1. You’re right to comment on guys leaving early. But that’s life at the Games also for the last years. No fun when it’s over. Just job done and home. No smoking/drinking/and driving distances makes for dull boys. Try Inverary an hour after the Games!
