Simpson enjoys best overall at Markinch

Jonathon Simpson (taken at Harris, not Markinch).

Markinch, Scotland – June 5, 2016 – The annual Markinch games in Fife had a healthy entry, with 11 in the juniors and 12 in the senior contest. The morning was overcast with a temperature of 10 degrees for the junior competition.  The sun appeared and raised the temperature to 16 degrees for the senior competitors, but with the boards in cold shade pipes struggled to hold.  The solo competitions and band competition were held on opposite sides of the park, so there was no interference, save a generator running next to the MSR contests. The event was well organized and well presented in a lovely setting. Results were fairly scattered, but Jonathon Simpson had the best overall day in the seniors, based on piobaireachd preference.
