  1. Lawrie, you are absolutley right. I know for a fact that none of New Zealand’s top young pipers were at this competition, and I’m pretty sure the competition was not even advertised over here. Surely the event needs a name change, it’s highly misleading.

  2. I understand people’s concerns about the naming of the contest but surely after pointing out those concerns, would it hurt to congratulate the winner? Congratulations, Lincoln!
