We have a Pick the Six winner!

Prize Retro Small Pipes by John Walsh Bagpipes
After more than 2,000 entries to the pipes|drums “Pick the Six” contest were tabulated (during the long flight home), once again not a single entry selected the exact order of the Grade 1 Final finish at the World Pipe Band Championship. In fact, only one submission got the first four prize-winners exactly right.
Congratulations to Jim McMillan of Inveraray, Scotland, who picked the first four correctly and then had only the fifth and sixth winners transposed!
