We received more than 1,000 submissions to our “Pick the Glenfiddich Five” contest, and after all of the entries were considered, Shaunna Hilder of Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, gained the most points, and receives the fabulous prize package, valued at more than $600, from R.G. at R.G. Hardie & Co. of Glasgow.
 
Not only did Shaunna select four of the five prize-winners at the Glenfiddich Invitational Solo Piping Competition, but she got all four in their correct place – the only person to do so. No entry managed to get the entire list correct.
 
For her keen prognosticatory skills, Shaunna will receive: 
Henderson blackwood pipe chanterR.G. Hardie pipe caseR.G. Hardie practice chanter
 
It’s interesting to note that the 2009 Glenfiddich Champion, Stuart Liddell, competed with a Henderson pipe chanter, like the one that Shauna will receive, in both events at the contest.
 
Our thanks again to R.G. Hardie & Co., and to our many readers who entered the contest!

TIP OF THE DAY
Play Piobaireachd. This music, though difficult to play well, will provide you with a complete piping workout, allowing your hands, and stamina to benefit, as well as your consciousness of tuning and expression.
