The Helen McGregor Memorial Trophy Night
Helen’s dying wish was a competition set up where pipers at the Waipu Highland Games could “flair their fingers” playing whatever they liked – be it a medley or several pieces, a modern pop song or something composed by themselves – with an eight minute time limit.
New Zealand’s top pipers enter this prestigious event which has grown in popularity over the years. Judging is by popular assent and with an eminent piper adding his/her points as well. Held on New Year’s Eve in the Celtic Barn foyer starting at 7pm, tickets $10 available at the door. Supper is served, bar sales available and it finishes early so that you can still go out and party the night away. A great way to start Hogmanay.
