Everyone arrived on time for this year’s thoroughly enjoyable Young Piper’s Championship, despite the snowy weather. All of the pipers were excited to get started and proceeded to impress us with the high quality of their playing.
Ian K. MacDonald, our esteemed judge for the event, told all six entrants that they had done a good job.
The audience certainly enjoyed them and an added bonus was that we had a couple come to hear the event who were not part of the family or friends’ group, but who had read about the event on the website and thought it sounded interesting.
Appreciation is extended to Calvin Gordon who stepped up and assisted us as Steward for the day.
This was a nice reminder that everyone is welcome to attend all events and if you don’t know many people when you arrive, you will by the time you leave!

The winner of The Gaelic Society of Toronto Grade 3/4
