    Thanks Pipe-Drums for stating earlier in July that the Worlds would be available from the BBC live on August 13. I tuned in from 7 am Toronto time until the end of the medleys and it was absolutely fascinating and most entertaining to watch. It was even more entertaining NOT knowing who the winners were to be. BBC did a first prize program and I’m sure we will see more of live” piping broadcasts from worldwide in the near future. Peter K. MacLeod

    A few things really stood out this year. I’ve been lucky to see the worlds in person and compete there, but watching it from home made it clear that love’m or hate’m that the RSPBA puts on a very oraganizd contest. That FMM were just that good this year, and that there were two bands that really just left it all out in the circle; Scottish Power, (and while not in the prize list) Oran Mor. The latter clearly out to show it belonged in the top grade. Well done to all.

TIP OF THE DAY
Don’t replace your ghillies with running shoes after you’ve played. Hose with running shoes don’t look cool.
