Ian K. MacDonald wins overall in Internet Maxville

The Internet – July 31, 2021 – The first-ever virtual version of the Glengarry Highland Games saw Ian K. MacDonald of Whitby, Ontario, win the aggregate prize in the Professional solo piping. The event took the place of the usual in-person North American Championships at Maxville, Ontario, which was cancelled for the second straight year due to the COVID-19 situation. MacDonald also gained the Best-Dressed award. The competition was the fourth in the summer online series put on by the Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario, contestants submitting pre-recorded videos of performances that judges assessed over several days. The final event in the series will be the online version of the annual Fergus games.

Daniel Carr of Collingwood, Ontario, was the winner of the Professional Freestyle event. Here’s his winning performance:
