Thoughts on competing, for the new piper...

MWPBA adjudicator Tad Myers has kindly put together a short paper for the new solo piper of what to expect when competing, including some top tips and valuable do's and don'ts. I asked Tad for a one-pager of insights, and he kept it succinct and to-the-point at 34 gems.

Grab Tad's "Thoughts on solo piping for the new piper". Read it all, and reap the benefits.

Thanks Tad, we all owe you a cold one.

-- Stuart.
