ScottishPower has established itself as an elite Grade 1 band, so the Shotts victory adds a new twist to the 2014 RSPBA Grade 1 season. Police Scotland Fife withdrew from the event.

TIP OF THE DAY
To ease the blowing-in period of a chanter reed, simply press the reed firmly in the lowest part of the blades between the finger and thumb until you feel both blades ease gently together. Continue to do this and keep blowing the reed until you find the reed giving an acceptible weight.
