We’re introducing a couple changes to the Indoor Games in Kemptville this year, and members of the Branch executive have been asked a few questions about that, so we thought it best to put together a FAQs post.
Soloists can receive PPBSO Champion Supreme points this year. Does that mean I have register through the PPBSO? No. All registration is handled through the Branch as in previous years: http://www.ppbso-ottawa.org/ottawa-branch-indoor-highland-games/
Do I need to be a PPBSO member to compete? No you do not need to be a member. However only members will receive PPBSO Champion Supreme points afterward.
How can I confirm that I am entered? Once you register, a screen will appear with a link where you can see lists of all registrants. You may need to scroll down or change tabs at the bottom to see your name. These lists are also available on the main page for the event (under the “Confirmation” heading): http://www.ppbso-ottawa.org/ottawa-branch-indoor-highland-games/
When is the deadline to register? The deadline to register is two weeks in advance (April 20th).
How does the juvenile band contest work? This category is meant for juvenile bands, or juvenile members of other bands. While individuals that are 18 and under have the option to compete as a group, this will not prevent their ability to also compete with their full band in their regular category afterward.
Volunteers: We are also looking for volunteers to help with stewarding etc. If any members of your band are able to help out, please let us know and forward any names.
Have other questions? If so let us know!
