Birnam, Scotland – August 31, 2013 - Matt Pantaleoni of St. Louis was [declared] the overall winner at the Birnam Highland Games, held on a sunny and warm late-summer day that is popular with solo pipers.

Addendum: Pantaleoni later discovered that the games had made an error, and that Jori Chsholm of Seattle was the rightful recipient. Pantaleoni personally presented the keeper trophy to Chisholm on September 6th.
