Myself= had one last month doing a solo - a twig caught in my heel stepping off after a turn !/2way through my tune causing me to trip, my fingers fumbling on my chanter while catching my balance-uggghh!! Got back to my tune and the judge still made remarks on the score sheet, corrective as well as positive, but seeing "Breakdown" circled in the middle of it was awful to say the least.
Couldn't call it a season, so I signed up for one last competition getting a nice surprise with the results.
As you know Dave, I was there for both events and itís safe to say you went from having a bad trip to a good trip within 3 weeks. Great recovery!
