Cupar, Scotland – June 14, 2014 – Allan Russell won three events and was second in the other for a superlative day at the Cupar Highland Games in Fife, Scotland. The event had a smaller entry than usual, mainly due to the UK Pipe Band Championships running on the same day. After some initial confusion about the draw, the contest took place in warm and humid conditions weather.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: If your bass drone wants to roar when struck in, it might be riding high on the bottom pin. If so your reed might be too sharp. A quick fix, if time is short, is to put a bit of tape over a third to half of the bush at the top. This will flatten the drone and allow you to shortenit by moving the middle joint down the bottom pin.
