Traditional march to the games...

Let's test your piping knowledge. Do you know what traditional major gathering these pipers are marching to?

There are several prominant pipers on the front row. Can you name any of them?

Hint: The position of pipe major of this group is reserved for the winner of the gold medal on the previous day.
Good Luck!

To the Make of a Piper...

To the make of a piper goes seven years of his own learning, and seven generations before. At the end of his seven years one born to it will stand at the start of knowledge, and leaning a fond ear to the drone he may have parley with old folks of old affairs.

What are your piping related resolutions?

Happy New Year! Despite the roller coaster world we live in, it has been another great year for piping. There have been so many great stories and accomplishments both local and world wide. It's always enjoyable associating with fellow pipers and lovers of the music. I hope that 2009 brings many more great things for all of our piping.

New years is a great time for resolutions...
What are your piping related resolutions? I would like to read about them.

One of my piping related new years resolutions is to return to the solo competition platform. I have taken a 4 year break from competing solo because I have chosen to spend more time focusing on other aspects of life, but I have always enjoyed the challenge and thrill of competing. So look for me this summer at the games!

Happy Piping!
