George Sherriff Memorial Invitational
The 2019 George Sherriff Memorial Invitational Piping Contest will be held on Saturday, November 16th in Hamilton, Ontario.
The event brings together top amateur players from across North America, and provides players a taste of what it’s like to play at a major professional event. For many past competitors, this contest has been a springboard to the professional ranks. We encourage all who can attend to do so, and support this terrific event.
