I know that Bobby Durning won the Amateur contest, I'm not sure about the rest.

The standard was very high.

Overall Gandy
1) Hats off to Eric Stein,extended family, and the whole Cup team for bringing it all off.

2) the PIO 2nd place was a surprise...given the trailing drones not heard by the 3rd place or others.

3) 16 Professionals is at least 4 too many; and at least one was clearly not up this level, adding to the overall length.

4) by facial expressions (or lack of) seen from the floor it appeared the judges were bored blind by 10pm and engaged in wandering thoughts like "...lets hurry up and get this overwith"

5) I'd love to see a matrix of judges comments and placings; with the ionospheric piping and instruments (not all) heard at this event what,except for an obvious [or subtle] error,can they possibly be writing other than subjective commentary on style,... or compliments?

6) IMHO the overall energy level of the professional medley event was not equal to prior years; even the tempos of the 'famed' jig/ hornpipe duo were a surprising sleeper.

7) anybody else get scrawed with a $5 parking fee when leaving...irrespective of a restaurant receipt for complementary parking ...inconspicuously limited to 2 hrs. per a little notation on the exit sign at the ticket booth. I was there for 10 hours.

Despite all...see you next year;...but I'd wish for not so long.
