18th Annual Lake Diefenbaker Pipe Band School - Cancelled due to COVID-19 Concerns

Unfortunately with the uncertainties and current travel risks associated with the current outbreak of COVID-19, the LDPBS executive has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 school for the health and safety of all our instructors, students, and Queen's House staff.  The excecutive will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and may try to reshedule the school later in the year if at all possible.  We appologize for any inconvenience this may have caused for any of our students.  Any students currently registered will be contacted directly to refund their fees.

Rob Kinnaird, LDPBS President 

2020 brings some big new changes for the Lake Diefenbaker Pipe Band School.  First, the dates for the 2020 school have been moved to April 13-17, 2020 to coinside with Easter Break.  We are also welcoming Jack Lee as a new piping instructor at the 2020 school.  Fees for the 2020 school have been reduced as well!  The school will be held at the same location as last year - Queen's House of Retreat in Saskatoon, SK- 601 Taylor Street West.  The facilities are located on 7 acres of land.  The property is riverfront, and has gorgeous views overlooking the South Saskatchewan River.  For more details see www.queenshouse.org
