Campbeltown, Scotland – September 15, 2012 – With a first in the MSR and a second in the Piobaireachd, Willie McCallum was the overall winner of the Springbank Invitational Solo Piping Competition for the eighth time in his career. Niall Stewart won the Piobaireachd, while Angus MacColl won the Hornpipe & Jig event, which is not counted towards the overall championship.  With efficient stewarding , there was very little time between competitors and hardly any tuning.

TIP OF THE DAY
Mid-section plares: Always carry two pairs of mallets, keeping the spare set bone-dry. Regardless of the amount of practice or preparation you make before a competition, weather willáreact with your cords and mallets and subsequently adversely effect your ability to flourish efficiently. Bad weather can’t be avoided, poor preparation for the conditions can.
