Newark, New Jersey – February 17, 2018 – Callum Beaumont of Linlithgow, Scotland, won his fourth Metro Cup championship, and third consecutive, against a field of the usual all-star players from the UK, Canada and the United States. The contest is put on by the Metro New York Branch of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association, and many of the non-US contestants conduct workshops with local pipe bands over the weekend to offset expenses.

Gavin Mackay of Kitchener, Ontario, won both the Piobaireachd and MSR events in the George Bell Memorial Amateur contest.
