  1. It was a lovely day and thanks must be given to those pipers who attended. There seems to be a lack of pipers willing to head north for the games these days and it’s very sad -given that the prize money is okay and the Kincraig cup is a fabulously opulent piece of silverwear, with some of pipings great names engraved on it.
