Bothy Ballad Champion of Champions

At the Champion of Champions 2010 in Elgin on 13th February Hector Riddell from Finzean successfully defended the title he won last year. Shona Donaldson - only the second female ever to be in the Champion of Champions Final - was placed second, while Joe Aitken was third. Other competitors were Alan Taylor and John Valentine. The standard was very high indeed, and I don't think anyone envied judge Robert Lovie his task - any one of the five could easily have taken the crown. It was the 28th time the event has been staged by Elgin Rotary Club, and was a fabulous evening's entertainment.
