  1. A great afternoon’s piping in the light music section. The standard was extremely high and those of us fortunate enough to be present had a really enjoyable time. Sincere thanks to President Mags Sproat, piping convenor John Angus Smith and the rest of the team at Comunn Uibhist agus Bharraigh Ghlaschu for a job well done and to all the competitors for providing a splendid musical experience.

    `One question – where were the magnificent trophies?
