Ian K. MacDonald overall winner at PPBSO Online Championships

The Internet – July 17, 2021 – Ian K. MacDonald of Whitby, Ontario, was the Professional piping overall winner at the PPBSO Championships, the fourth online event in the summer series of competitions put on by the Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario. MacDonald took two first-prizes over the three events. Most of the solo drumming competitions had a small entry. James Gendron won the best-dressed prize, awarded by the association to encourage contestants to wear kilted attire in their pre-recorded videos that were assessed by judges over a number of days.

The final events in the online season will be “Maxville” and “Fergus” in August. The Cobourg Highland Games are expected to be held in-person in Cobourg, Ontario, on September 11th.
