MacLellan Elected CPA President

Perth, Scotland – October 24, 1999 – Colin MacLellan was elected President of the Competing Pipers Association (CPA) here today at the organization’s annual general meeting at the Salutation Hotel.

MacLellan won the election in a close vote against Brian Donaldson of the Scots Guards, and Logan Tannock, of Tillicoultry (near Stirling).

In a somewhat surprising move, Donaldson was elected Vice President, beating Iain Speirs of Edinburgh in another close vote. Louise Hay and Jenny Hazzard were elected Secretary and Treasurer, respectively.

Six committee members were also elected: Jimmy McGregor, Brian Mulhearn, Arthur Gillies, Anne Spalding, Duncan Watson, and James Murray.

After the election, a positive discussion ensued on holding major recitals and teaching classes, and there was a proposal to use video as a means of establishing grading of CPA members.
