Jori Chisholm with the Glenisla Challenge Cup at a muddy ground.

Glenisla, Scotland – August 18, 2017 – Jori Chisholm won the overall trophy for best piper in the senior events at the annual Glenisla Highland Games against five other entrants. Conditions were windy with persistent rain, and the games park on the banks of the picturesque Isla River was about half-flooded, the rest of the park deep in mud. There was no piobaireachd. Judges for all events were Ian Duncan, Murray Henderson and the mysterious Major J.P.O. Gibb, who reportedly owns the land on which the games are held.

TIP OF THE DAY
Check the diameter of your blowstick bore , and if too narrow , try to have it re-bored as it causes air restriction and makes the pipes hard to blow.
