    OK so Xavier was first in the strathspey and reel, and 2nd in the jig and didn’t place in the march. Donald won the jig and was 2nd in the march. I am not sure that you can say that Xavier was the overall winner. This is NOT meant to diminish either players outstanding achievement. But, how are the points” scored????”

Now there is the matter of the bottle of Grouse that was presented to Xavier, I guess I will get that half when I hand the trophy over to him next March (lol).

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: Double up hemp for anything but a touch-up job. If you keep the strands at even tension you double the tension you can apply. You also cut hemping time in half. Better, faster quality.
