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 September.

We are looking for members that would server as officers for 2018. Please let us know if you are interested in serving.

Please update us with a contact for your group so we can keep everybody updated.
