Re: Pleasanton Highland Games

Jim is correct. Just the main circle where Grade V doesn't perform.

Re: Dowco Triumph Street “ceases competitive operations”

Such as shame. I was shocked and saddened when I saw the news on Facebook. I was able to catch up a bit with David and Shaunna at the Pleasanton Games but they didn't let the cat out of the bag. A...

Re: Toneczar bagpipe information needed

Toneczar was run by Chris Hamilton who, while still in the moderator team, is largely inactive here at BDF. If I recall correctly Chris never made bagpipes, so they must have been made for him to...

Re: Cold weather playing

Here where I live, cold weather playing is about 40°F! I think I'd die in the weather some of you guys play in. Kudos!

Re: Pleasanton Highland Games

Jim, I got every performance in the circle on Sunday—all grades. It'll take me days to process and upload them all. (I have a full-time job and my home internet is super slow.)

Re: New to forum, introduction.

I sure wish Pleasanton could get you back. I miss seeing you, Aaron. Hope all is well!

And, yes, The Wicked Tinkers are a very entertaining band to enjoy live—or via recording!

Re: Never Leave your pipes in the car in high summer.

In general, when out of the house, leave your pipes where you would leave your 2-year-old child.

In the car alone in the heat? No.

Alone in the corner of a bar? No.

Re: Competing without bag cover?

I competed with and without bag covers. I never had a single comment from a judge one way or the other about it.

Re: Selling pipes (not an ad)

Generally, you can piece values together by the asking prices found in the Trading Post Archive (though they may have sold for lower) and by completed sales at eBay. That’s a starting point. But...

Re: Selling pipes (not an ad)

It's supply and demand. Kintails aren't a "hot" make of pipes. You could argue that not enough people are seeing your pipes for sale, but that seems unlikely based on what you've said. You might just...

Re: Little Mac Valve

I put in 67.5 hours last week at work. I'll add the McColl conversion to my list of free-time projects! I'm behind on a lot of them.

Re: Practice Chanter hertz

That reading doesn't reflect reality. The device is designed to pretend the PC is tuning in a pipe chanter range—which it isn't really. Divide that number by 2 and you should get the real Hz for your...
