Toronto Indoor Games tops 100 solo entries

The return of the Toronto Indoor Games on Saturday, April 15, is destined to be an overwhelming success with organizers reporting more than 100 competitors entered for the solo piping and drumming events. At least 16 quartettes are expected to compete in the afternoon.

The Toronto Indoor, which was last held in 1995, was once one of the more popular events in North America, and was seen by many as the official kick-off to the Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario’s season. The event is organized by the Toronto Branch of the PPBSO, with branch President Gary Moore spearheading the effort.

Moore did say that solo drumming entries were relatively low, and bass and tenor contests will not be held.

The Toronto Indoor Games will be held in northern Toronto at the Denison Armoury in Downsview. Further information and directions.
