On Saturday the 29th of June at the West Lothian Highland Games in Bathgate, the solo competitors of the ScottishPower Pipe Band were out in force just the week after the Scottish Championships in Dumbarton.
Trying to get a practice run before the Blair Atholl Games on the 30th of May, five members of the band faced a field of eighteen. Out of those eighteen, Derek Midgley and David Wilton emerged at the top of the list. Derek won the Open Piobaireachd and placed 2nd in the Open March and Open Strathspey/Reel, winning the overall piper of the day award.
David won both the Open March and Open Strathspey/Reel competitions. ScottishPower soloists hope for another good day tomorrow at the Blair Atholl Games.
