To all Great Lakes Shrine
Bag Pipe Association (GLSBPA) members. We had a great event
in Indianapolis at 2016 GLSA. A big Thank You to William
Stanton from Murat Temple. We look forward to seeing
everybody in Springfield, IL at 2017 GLSA.
Bill Rogers from Ansar
Temple is planning the competition along with a Mass Band
for the parade. More information will be coming soon. Please
let us know if you have any questions.
There will be band competition, solo competition for pipes
and drums and we are working on having a throw together
groups for individual that will travel alone. Hoping to have
a fun time, so even if you don’t want to compete, bring you
pipes to play as a group after the competition and in the
Mass Band for the parade. Competition will be held at the
“Trade Winds” (Knight’s Action Park). Located on I 72 south
of Springfield. Competition time has not been set yet.
Judges have been lined up and hoping for a good turnout.
GLSPBA dues for $100 has
been mailed, please support the GLSPBA by paying your dues.
Bill Rogers was elected
President of 2017 GLSBPA in Indianapolis last year. He has
resigned this position, but remains as Chairman for the 2017
GLSA Bagpipe Competition. Bobby Stoops has moved to
President with Scott Abbs taking the position of
Secretary/Treasurer until we meet in Springfield this
