To mark 20 years of adult amateur competitions, the CLASP held an online World Amateur Champion of Champions Solo event on April 27. The overall winner of the competition was Cameron Bonar, who received a set of David Naill DN2 pipes as his prize. The competition was organised as a live online event, and a YouTube link to rewatch the full competition is below.

The Competition League for Amateur Solo Pipers (The CLASP) was set up by The National Piping Centre in 2003 to give adult amateur pipers a competition platform to compete on, through a series of grading competitions held yearly throughout Scotland and the UK. In its 20 years, CLASP has evolved, gaining a global membership base.
