Iain Currie of Store Merloese, Denmark, is the big winner of the 2010 pipes|drums’ Pick the Glenfiddich Five contest. Iain’s answer gained 12 total points – the most of the nearly 2,000 entries to the competition that called for canny p|d readers to predict the overall aggregate list from the 2010 Glenfiddich Invitational Solo Piping Competition at Blair Atholl, Scotland, on October 30th.

For his prognosticative powers, Iain receives a fabulous prize package valued at $550, donated by the good folks at R.G. Hardie & Co. of Glasgow:  

Congratulations to Iain Currie, and thanks to R.G. Hardie & Co. for once again making this contest so popular, and of course to our thousands of readers for their support!
