This weekend at the Highlands and Islands solo piping competition in Oban, members of the band took 5 prizes in the B/C events. Leading the charge was Craig Muirhead who won the MSR and placed second in the Piobaireachd. Struan Thorpe placed third in the MSR event, while Keith Bowes and Derek Midgley took third and fourth in the piobaireachd, respectively. Congrats to all who placed. While the next major solo competition is in Blair Atholl at the end of the month, these soloists are now focused with the rest of the band for the first two band competitions coming up at Gourock and Dumbarton in the next few weeks.
