PPBSO Announces Champion Supreme Winners

The Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario (PPBSO), North America’s largest piping association, has compiled and announced the winners of its annual “Champion Supreme” awards to bands and soloists.

For bands, the award is based on the best overall scores at designated Champion Supreme events. In 2001 these comprised competitions at Fort Erie, Chatham, Barrie, Fergus, Sarnia, and Maxville.

For soloists, results are tabulated from all PPBSO sanctioned events, but using only the competitor’s best six results, thus ensuring the result is not based simply on good attendance.
