Click for Quicktime video.Oban, Scotland – August 27, 2009 – It rained throughout the day – or at least until the prizes were announced and then the sun started to shine. Through the challenging weather conditions, the bouncy castle and starter’s pistols going off, A-Grade and B-Grade pipers vied for prizes, and ultimately Glenn Brown, Glasgow; Niall Stewart, Kyle of Lochalsh, Scotland; Simon McKerrell, Lenzie, Scotland; Alistair Lee, Vancouver; and Willie McIntyre, Edinburgh took home the big awards. Brown and McIntyre were the only ones to take home two prizes on the day.
 
About 30 pipers got up for the march to the Argyllshire Gathering games at Mossfield Park, with Alastair Dunn, the winner of the Gold Medal the day before, taking the traditional Pipe-Major’s spot. Among other tunes, the played “Highland Wedding” and “Raigmore,” and of course “The Argyllshire Gathering” entering the field, crook-weilding Argyllshire-“society” types trailing behind.
