Actually I have friends whose kids do play bagpipes. Quite brillant musicians actually so they never sound too bad. Always good value on New Years.

I will have to tell my friend about this story. She will like it.

So do all Canadians carry bagpipes? :D

Just the men, the women bring their knitting to the rink.:P

One year, either Canadians or Skate Canada, they had birds flying around the Ottawa Civic Centre.

Actually it could give a whole new meaning to "Shitting all over a performance".

Or "skating like crap".

Wow, Morry -- thanks for sharing.

The "what would you do if birds are in the rink interrupting competition" sure would be a fun question to ask on the Referee exams for appointment. ;) Imagine the answers...

One of my rinks has birds nesting in the rafters routinely. There's usually bird nest bits and droppings on the ice below the nests. You learn to avoid those spots. ;)

Multiple choice answers
A. Stop the competition
B. Let the competition continue but give extra points to the skater who ends up with the most bird crap on their head
C. Give extra points to the skater who can make a feather boa out of what is dropped from the rafters
D. Bring out the bagpipes

I remember that we had the World Jr Championships in Brisbane, little House Martin birds got into the building somehow and were swooping down on the ice to get water. It didn't cause any problems or delays. I think that, once the action started, the birds left. It was a nice incident.
