They were two days to remember, and we continue with our special photo feature from the 2013 World Pipe Band Championships, with images from the Sunday, the second and final day of competitions from Glasgow Green, exclusively for subscribers to pipes|drums Magazine. Like the Saturday, the weather began with intermittent rain and strong winds hitting several bands, including, once again, Shotts & Dykehead Caledonia.

We hope that you enjoys these images, which complement other 2013 World's features, including our Sights & Sounds Video Highlights, all 12 performances on HD video video from the Grade 2 Final, and video highlights of 2013 World Champions Field Marshal Montgomery celebrating and discussing their success.

TIP OF THE DAY
Make sure stocks are cleaned thoroughly and all excess seasoning is removed. Check this by either shining a light down them or for drone stocks align two at a time and you can check them both for seasoning residue.
