The draw for the European Pipe Band Championships, to be held at Forres on June 24, took place today at RSPBA HQ in Glasgow.
Chief Executive Ian Embelton, Chairman Gordon Hamill and Vice Chairman John Hughes were all present, with the playing positions of all bands and drum majors made using a random selector app rather than the more traditional plastic balls system.
