This year at the “Your Wedding “Exhibition” held at the AECC on 19-20th January 2013, The Thistle Piping team decided to run a very special competition called WIN YOUR PIPER. Brides registered their details at the stand and from the register, 7 couples were identified and given the great news that they were finalists of the WIN YOUR PIPER competition. All they had to do was answer one simple question……… “Tell us why you think you should win your piper from Thistle Piping?” best answer wins!
We have been overwhelmed with the amazing feedback and wonderful comments from our contestants, some who tell us that we have been recommended time and time again and that they desperately would love this prize, some who have shown their talents as poets, others who have told us of their international realtives coming to their wedding, some who clearly have very Scottish routes and believe us when we say that choosing the winner has been a real challenge.
Proprietor, Pipe Major Julie Brinklow had the task of choosing the final winner.
It’s been soooo hard! When I decided to run the competition, I hadn’t anticipated how difficult it would be to select only one winner. Everyone’s answers have been really great and I’ve therefore decided today, that there will be an overall winner, but also the other entries will receive a smaller prize too with there being a 1st runner up amongst these. (PM J.Brinklow)
Of the 6 entries that we received, we are delighted to reveal the winners as follows:-
- Overall WINNER = Nycolle Clubb has won her Piper!
- 1st Runner up = Rachel Robertson a close contender, has won 25% discount
- Further Runner Ups = Susan Reid, Gemma Robb, Bruce Cardno & Joanne Carroll, have all won 10% discount
Thank you everyone for taking park. Nycolle’s winning aswer will shortly be on the facebook page.
