After a remarkable 20 years as a member of The Pipers’ & Pipe Band Society of Ontario’s highland games stewarding team, with the last 10 of those years as Chief Steward, Glenn Covert has decided to step down from the role. Said, Glenn, “I have enjoyed my tenure greatly, meeting and making hundreds of friends over the years”, adding, “I wish to thank everyone that I have been associated with and worked with over the years”.
The role of a games steward is critical to the success of any highland games – anywhere. And the Chief Steward, the “steward of the stewards”, is pivotal to the success of any contest. “The Chief Steward is, like so many of the administrative roles of this organization, often thankless and under-appreciated, yet Glenn put his heart into the task at hand, of ensuring our games were set-up with all the must-have parts in place to run the events we all love”, said Michael Grey, PPBSO president. “Whomever steps up to fill the vacant role will have big brogues to fill. On behalf of members of the PPBSO and our partner games committees I sincerely thank Glenn for his diligence, dedication and unwavering commitment to ensuring we have a place to play”.
The PPBSO wishes Glenn and his partner, Catherine, also a familiar supporter and steward of our games, all the very best and look forward to seeing their friendly faces at future PPBSO events.
Thank you, Glenn and Catherine!
