Eastern Ontario Champion Supreme
Since 2006, the Ottawa Branch has awarded champion supreme points to amateur solo competitors and bands at various contests in Eastern Ontario. This includes contests sanctioned by the main body of the Pipers' and Pipe Band Society of Ontario, as well as other events with comparable categories held in the region from May to September.
The final results recognize those pipers, drummers and pipe bands that have had the most overall success during the season at events in our region.
The Ottawa Branch of the PPBSO uses the solo and band point calculations as defined in the PPBSO Rule Book. Points are allocated depending on the number of competitors registered in the contest, as well as competitors’ placings. For details, please consult the PPBSO Rule Book.
Ties are broken according to PPBSO rules. Winners will be contacted in the fall, when awards are traditionally presented.
Pipe Major Tom Brown Memorial Trophy
The Pipe Major Tom Brown Memorial Trophy will be awarded to the “Most Successful Pipe Band – Eastern Ontario Champion Supreme – All Grades”. This is defined as the band with the most 1st place finishes in contests with two or more bands competing. As such, it is possible for a band in any grade to win this trophy each year.
In the event of a tie, the band with the most 2nd place finishes in contests with three or more bands competing will receive the award.
