Toronto Indoor back on in 2008
After a hiatus in 2007, the Toronto Indoors Games will take place again in 2008, according to Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario Toronto Branch President Gary Moore. The event will more than likely be on April 5th.
Moore said that there “will be a full slate of professional and amateur solos both piping and drumming as well as mini-bands,” and indicated that the competition will be held at Denison Armoury in Downsview, Ontario, in the north part of Toronto.
The Toronto Indoor was resurrected in 2006 after being inactive for more than a decade. The contest was well attended, but a lack of entries was cited as the cause for the cancellation of the 2007 contest.
For decades, the Toronto Indoor Games were considered one of the premier events on the North American Pipe Band calendar, with top-grade bands using the competition to debut new material for the following outdoor season.
