Finally back from a great Scotland summer, driving around and competing all over the place. Very happy how it turned out. You can check out the photos and results in the respective sections, but in summary it was one of my best years thus far. I won the Piobaireachd at Lochearnhead with MacLeod of Colbeck, then I won the Dunvegan Medal at Skye with The Battle of Waternish, and got in the final of the S/R. I won the overall at Dornoch with a 2nd in the Piob, 1st in the March, S/R, and 2nd in the Jigs. I got 5th in the A Piobaireachd at Perth and 4th in the Open March, followed by a 4th in the A Piobaireachd at the Lochaber Gathering. I was very excited to place 4th in the Gold Medal at Oban (Argyllshire Gathering) and 5th in the A Grade Strathspey/Reel, which ups my grading to A+/A+ for 2017. Finally I snuck into the prize list at Braemar with a 6th in the Piobaireachd there. Overall it was a pretty productive year. Now back in New Jersey and taking a small break before the London competition in November.
