MacLellan, Tannock to run for CPA leadership?
We have learned that Colin MacLellan of Glasgow and Logan Tannock of Tillicoultry are each reportedly interested in vying for the presidency of the Competing Pipers Association.
With the sad and sudden loss of Colin Drummond, the CPA leadership position became available.
MacLellan, who in August moved back to Scotland after over 20 years living in Canada, currently lives in Glasgow, with his wife, Jenny Hazzard, a native of Toronto, Canada. MacLellan has won the Highland Society of London’s Gold Medal at the Northern Meeting, in addition to the Silver Chanter (twice), and virtually every major piobaireachd prize.
Logan Tannock, a successful professional piper for over 20 years and a winner of many prizes, has been involved with the CPA for several years, and is currently Vice President of the organization.
The CPA boasts a membership of over 300, and was formed in 1977, mainly as a union to address problems of ever increasing numbers at the Argyllshire Gathering and Northern Meeting competitions. It was the CPA that initiated and still sponsors the Silver Medal competitions at those two events.
