Turikina warms up for Mason, Eade, Robertson, Easton

Turikina, New Zealand – January 27, 2013 – Turikina is a small farming settlement approximately two hours north of Wellington with a population of around 250. It has been holding an annual Highland games since 1864 and remains a favourite on the New Zealand solo piping calendar as one of the few traditional outdoor games. This year’s event was held in brilliant sunshine with large crowds and good fields in all of the piping grades. Results of the Open solo piping were mixed, with a different winner of each event. Iain Robertson gained the most overall points to gain the aggregate award.
