Morar, Scotland – August 4, 2013 - Although he didn’t win an event, John Mulhearn enjoyed the most consistency overall at the annual Mallaig & Morar Highland Games, this year held down the road at Morar. Organizers added a fifth in each event with the larger-than-usual entry of 14, and the prizes were well spread around. Weather was breezy and mainly warm with a few spots of rain

TIP OF THE DAY
Quality reed selection is a pre-requisite to obtaining a good tone in a pipe corps. Four criteria to consider when testing reeds are balance, vibrancy, volume and strength.
