Mackay of Lewis wins Pick The Six!
Peter Mackay of the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, has emerged the winner of the 2016 pipes|drums Pick The Six competition!
Peter’s entry outlasted a tie-break random draw with multiple other entries that also got the first five prize-winners correct.
None of the several thousand entries managed to get the top-six Grade 1 World’s list in exact order, with Police Scotland Fife’s sixth prize adding surprising – and refreshing – element to the result. Twenty-six entries had the first five in order, and most of those chose either Simon Fraser University or Spirit of Scotland to finish sixth. Those two bands placed seventh and eighth, respectively.
For his amazing powers of pipe band prognostication, Peter Mackay receives a slew of prizes contributed by pipes|drums advertisers and pipes|drums itself.
Congratulations to Peter and thank you to our faithful readers for participating in our annual Pick The Six contest!
