Stolen Bagpipes at Geelong Contest

A young member has requested we publish a post regarding a theft which occurred yesterday at the Geelong highland gathering.

The bagpipes were placed in the Watsonia RSL band tent and appear to have been stolen around 11:00am. The pipes are a set of Grainger and Campbell’s in a bagpiper case back pack.

If you hear of anything please contact the Pipe Bands Victoria Secretary via email at or contact Victoria Police.

The person who has had the pipes stolen has requested we remind members to be extra vigilant to keep their valuables safe during public events so it doesn’t happen to others. Unfortunately, an opportunistic person has taken advantage of the situation.
