Default Re: Competition Breakdown

Years ago at the Chicago games, my events were in the order piobaireachd, march, strathspey & reel. Sailed through the piobaireachd. Got into the third part of the march and just couldn't keep the pressure up & stopped. Only got through the first line of the strathspey and had the same problem. Oh well, didn't worry about it. When I got home I found that over (a long) time, saliva had worn a small hole in the hide bag below the bottom of the blowpipe. That explained the breakdowns.
