Twirler troupes are now a familiar part of any parade or fun day event adding a bit of razzamatazz and entertainment to the proceedings. There are several troupes in the local area who also train hard for competitions. In 1982 the Sentinel investigated the twirling phenomenon, discovering that baton-twirling was one of the fastest growing sports in Scotland. They featured the award winning Clovenstone majorettes who were aiming to travel to the home of majorettes, the USA to see the North American Championships.
