Johannesburg – May 25, 2013 – At the De La Salle Highland Gathering in Victory Park, Johannesburg, Transvaal Scottish once again won the overall Grade 2 title, narrowly escaping the clutches of the African Skye who won the MSR.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers, try not to anticipate the doubling, playing ahead of the beat. Worry about placing the G gracenote right in time and the second gracenote of the doubling will follow. Listen to yourself playing the melody with only the G gracenote.
