Braemar, Scotland – September 3, 2016 – The prize lists at the Royal Braemar Highland Gathering were heavy with non-UK competitors in an even more pronounced way than usual. Pittsburgh’s Nick Hudson and Ben McClamrock of Washington, DC, pulled in the firsts, Hudson winning the Braemar Gold Medal. Hudson was fresh off of a successful Northern Meeting where he won the B-Grade MSR, and McCalmrock took both light music events and was awarded the Braemar Silver Medal for Best Overseas Piper, and won the the overall award for most aggregate points in the senior piping.

The competition had at least one teacher judging at least one pupil, which goes against the policies of both the Competing Pipers Association and the Scottish Solo Piping Judges Association.
