This month’s knockout event was well attended although slightly marred by seasonal illness causing some competitors to scratch. The activity level was rather high with both Groups A and B Piping and Drumming competitions.
Group A pipers had to play a medley consisting exclusively of Canadian content meaning the tunes must have originated with a Canadian composer. Group B pipers played a 2/4 march.
The adjudicators for the evening were Jacob Dicker and Neil Birkett (drumming). Jacob gave a recital after the competition was concluded.
