Markinch, Scotland – June 3, 2012 – Michael Elder and Alasdair Henderson took the first prizes at the Markinch Highland Games in Fife, Scotland, a contest that has had a reputation for hiring judges not normally associated with senior solo piping events.

TIP OF THE DAY
Check the diameter of your blowstick bore , and if too narrow , try to have it re-bored as it causes air restriction and makes the pipes hard to blow.
