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
To ease the blowing-in period of a chanter reed, simply press the reed firmly in the lowest part of the blades between the finger and thumb until you feel both blades ease gently together. Continue to do this and keep blowing the reed until you find the reed giving an acceptible weight.
