Police Scotland Fife and Manawatu Scottish in charge at Perth

Perth, Scotland – August 13, 2023 – Four Grade 1 bands weathered the wildly intermittent spells of, rain, wind, cloud and sunshine at the Perth Highland Games, and it was Police Scotland Fife that was the overall best, and New Zealand’s Manawatu Scottish an aggregate second with a win in the Medley and a second in the MSR. Of additional note, Canterbury Caledonian Society, also from New Zealand, took two firsts in piping in the Medley event, and Police Scotland Fife enjoyed two drumming firsts.

Remarkably, there was a six-band Grade 2 competition, yet no band actually with that grade entered. Rather than cancelling the event, it went ahead with a Grade 3 and Juvenile bands playing up.
