S1 pupil Charlie Mack has won 3rd prize in the World On-line Solo Piping Championships in the 12yrs and Under Category. The on-line competition was run by Jori Chisolm, founder of bagpipelessons.com. The event attracted an entry of over 1500 pipers across all age categories. Charlie has been working very hard during lockdown and entered quite a few online solo competitions. His results have got better each time culminating in this top 3 result in the World Championships. The band are immensely proud of Charlie for the effort and perseverance he has demonstrated and it’s great to see this rewarded. This good news comes at the same weekend as we should have been competing at the World Pipe Band Championships which unfortunately had to be cancelled this year. Big thanks to Charlie for giving us something to cheer about this weekend.
