Re: Where are you putting your pipes when not playing?

Chanter in a Piper's Pal, and both in my case. Very rarely do I ever leave them out. Of course, I live in a desert, so I need to keep as much moisture in them as possible.

Re: Fort Ground Grill music

It used to be framed and up on the wall in there. Many a night of beer in that place caused many a hangover in class the next day. Or so I've been told.:thumb:

Re: What's your (piping related) "prized possession" ??
