Watson-Massey injured by gazebo at Thornton

Thornton, Scotland – July 2, 2016 – The Thornton Highland Games were a small but lively affair, punctuated by high winds and a gust blowing the judges’ gazebo tent off its moorings and into junior piper Brodie Watson-Massey in mid-performance. Watson-Massey was fortunate not to be badly injured. He was tended to by paramedics, and was allowed to play again. The judges escaped without injury, except perhaps to their pride. In the Senor solo piping, Eddie Gaul and Allan Russell took the firsts, with Russell having the overall best day.
