Large Entry for CLASP Online March Competition – Full Results and Pictures

We had another very good uptake for The CLASP ‘March’ online event. With the cancellation of many Highland Games, CLASP’s next event will be ‘A Virtual Highland Games’ May/June 2021. The prizes will be sponsored by R.G. Hardie & Co. Bagpipes. The CLASP Virtual Highland Games will mark the end of the 2020/2021 CLASP year. Entries are now open for this event via The CLASP website.  

Judges for the Maerch competition were: Finlay MacDonald, Jenny Hazzard, Colin McLellan, Ross Ainsley, Andrew Bova, Bruce Gandy, Bradley Parker and Steven Blake.
