Perth, Scotland – August 11, 2013 - The usual big entry in the solo piping at the Perth Highland Games was even bigger this year, and weather was generally good, except for a 10-minute lash of rain that caught a few unlucky players. Andrew Bonar from British Columbia had the best overall day and took home the trophy. Light music was broken into heats.

This will flatten the drone and allow you to shortenit by moving the middle joint down the bottom pin.
