Sherriff Memorial Will Draw Top Amateur Pipers

The fourth annual George Sherriff Memorial Amateur Invitational Piping Competition will be held on Saturday, November 20, at McMaster University’s Convocation Hall in Hamilton, Ontario.

The Sherriff is considered by many to be the world’s premier event for amateur pipers.

Fourteen invited pipers have confirmed their attendance: Lynda MacKay, David Duckett, Steven Tripp, Glenn Pocock, Steven Jenkins, and Douglas MacRae (all from Ontario), Alison Dunsire from British Columbia, Bill Weir, Heather Scott, Andrew Douglas, Dekker Forrest, and Mike Kotch from the United States, Keith Petrie from Manitoba, and Sebastien Launcelott from Nova Scotia.

The competition is named in honour of George Sherriff, who lived in Hamilton, Ontario, for many years and taught dozens of young pipers.
