Perth, Scotland – August 11, 2013 – The usual big entry in the solo piping at the Perth Highland Games was even bigger this year, and weather was generally good, except for a 10-minute lash of rain that caught a few unlucky players. Andrew Bonar from British Columbia had the best overall day and took home the trophy. Light music was broken into heats.
