Blairgowrie, Scotland – September 4, 2016 – A lovely sunny day greeted nearly 30 pipers competing in the senior events at the annual Blairgowrie games, until about 1:30 pm when it started hosing down rain and never stopped. Jamie Troy of Victoria, British Columbia, was the winner of the overall award for those in the top grades, and James Dyson of Halifax, Nova Scotia, was the overall winner of the C-Grade events, taking the Jimmie MacGregor Memorial Shield. The games received high praise from competitors due to the efficient organization of the Henderson piping family and friends. The contest took strong measures to ensure that policies against teachers judging pupils were followed.
