Inverness Games Results/ Stonehaven Games Results

Excellent organisation by Inverness Piping Society for the 2022 Inverness Games piping held at Bught Park on July 16, writes Archie Maclean. There were two large marquees for judges (one for MSR and another for Piobaireachd) and seating out in front near the competition boards for audiences to see/hear the competitions. Audiences were large and appreciative.

The marquees could accommodate competitors and judges if weather forced the competitions indoors – no need as weather started off warm, cooled later, but remained dry.

Eight seniors competed in MSR and Hornpipe & Jig competitions, seven in Piobaireachd. Two competed in Junior Piobaireachd and MSR competitions. Champion Piper was Sandy Cameron, Roy Bridge (pictured).
