The PPBSO AGM took place in Brantford on November 7th. Both motions presented by the Ottawa Branch were adopted as policies for further action by the main body (recognizing Grade 1 drum corps in partnership with the Glengarry Highland Games committee, moving to electronic communications wherever possible).

The Branch extends its sincere thanks to outgoing PPBSO President Duncan MacRae, and congratulates incoming President Chris Buchanan, incoming Vice President Charlie MacDonald, and other new members of the PPBSO executive.
