Duncan Johnstone

Glasgow – March 18, 2017 – Results were fairly spread around at the annual competition held in honour of the great Duncan Johnstone, reserved for those grade B and C by the Competing Pipers Association. The five first prizes went to five different players, and Cameron MacDougall gained the overall B-Grade trophy. The event at the National Piping Centre was remarked on for running “amazingly smooth,” with Helen Wilkinson coordinating stewarding, and the CPA organizing the orders of play. A beta version of a stewarding app helped things flow along. The app shows who’s checked in and who’s tuning and performing, with updates shown in real-time on a big screen.
