Archie Cairns Cup
The new venue, at the Navy Officers’ Mess on Lisgar St., was well attended for the Group B Archie Cairns Cup slow air, 6/8 competition. There was a full roster of 11 pipers and three drummers as well as over 35 spectators. Adjudicators were P/M Allan Clark for piping and Jim Corrigan for drumming. The competition was followed by a spirited Drumming recital given by Jim Corrigan (Chris Dodson accompanying) and an energetic piping recital by P/M Alan Clark.
