New for 2019
PPBSO Champion Supreme Points for solo events
As announced at the last Knockout, PPBSO Champion Supreme points will be awarded to PPBSO members (alongside the traditional Eastern Ontario Champion Supreme points). Please note: PPBSO members, or members of other pipe band organizations risk disqualification if they enter a grade not assigned to them by their organization.
Juvenile band contest
We’re excited to offer a juvenile band contest!
How it will work: Minimums for Juvenile grade are 5 pipers, 2 snare drummers, 1 bass, all of eligible juvenile age. “Eligible juvenile age” means any competitor whose 19th birthday occurs after the contest. Proof of age may be requested. Juvenile bands may add a non-juvenile piper as Pipe Major in addition to the minimum 5 juvenile age pipers. Juvenile bands may also add a non-juvenile drummer as their Lead Drummer in addition to the minimum 2 juvenile age snare drummers. Players of eligible juvenile age on the roster of a Juvenile band may also compete with one (1) non-Juvenile band on the day.
We’ve also made some changes to the types of quartets that groups can enter.
