  1. This was a truly deserving win by Alastair McInnes a true piping gentleman. Alastair also gave a great recital the night before and his daughter won the bronze medal! Ian Lyons won the MSR, but was also placed in the HJ and a third in the Gold Medal. A great effort! Another brilliant year, I thouroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
