This year the Highland Piping Society of Canterbury will host the Open New Zealand Solo Piping Championships in Christchurch as part of our Silver Chanter and Clasp Weekend across October 21st and 22nd.
We are very pleased to announce our judges will be;
- Colin MacLellan – Scotland
- Brian Switalla – Auckland
- Stuart Findlayson – Ruakaka
- Iain Hines – Wellington
- Andy Roach – Brisbane (Saturday events only)
We are also pleased to announce a few changes we hope will positively add to the weekend.
Events will be split across the two days with all Open New Zealand Championship events reserved for Sunday 22nd October and all other grades competition events being conducted on Saturday 21st October. We hope this will allow all other grade competitors the change to enjoy the Open New Zealand Championship competition events unhindered.
Another initiative the society executive has trialed is an electronic entry form. Entries are now open and the entry form and competition schedule links are shown below. Entries close on Wednesday 27th September. Late entries will be accepted at the discretion of the HPSC and a late entry fee of $10 per event will apply.
