  1. You news blog is very informative, but is quite UK-centric. Recently, U.S. completed a major piping event called “Metro Cup”, but it wasn’t reported anywhere by your blog.

    1. We have carried the results and reports from the Metro Cup in the past Mr Young; indeed we recently carried the 2024 draws for the piping, both amateur and professional. We did not receive any results or pictures or reports from the organisers for this year’s event. RW
