The January Knockout was held back at our usual location, HMCS Bytown Wardroom, in downtown Ottawa. The event was a slow-air and 6/8 march competition for the Group B and Over 40 pipers.
The piping adjudicator for the evening was Andrea Boyd. After the competition was complete, Andrea performed wonderfully in recital.
