Braemar, Scotland – September 5, 2015 – Jori Chisholm of Seattle was the overall winner of the J. Colin MacKenzie Challenge Shield at the Royal Braemar Highland Games, winning both light music events. Gordon McCready of Renfrew, Scotland, won the piobaireachd competition and the gold medal for it. Weather cold and windy and temperatures never got above 10 degrees, but there was no rain.
