I stand corrected.  But to clarify, I didn't say there
was a link to a list of pipers for hire, or I would
have provided that.  And I did note "for hire", not
volunteer.  Back in 1983 when we contacted them, they
were called the North Texas Clan Association or some
such, slightly different from today.

The person we contacted way back when was most
gracious and helpful.
