I think that those are all of the qualifiers, except for Gordon Walker since the Sliver Chanter isn't a qualifier anymore. Stuart Liddell won five of the qualifying contests. So, that leaves four spots open. I guess we'll have to wait to see who else gets invited.

Quoted from this pipes|drums article:

"If the number of winners from the qualifying contests does not total10, the Glenfiddich then moves to inviting those who finished second or even third in the qualifying contests, with the exception of the Gold Medals."

What was the 5th qualifying event Stuart won?

I wasn't sure if the Silver chanter was still a qualifying event what's why I put a question mark at Gordon's name.

I would imagine Gordon will get on that list. One would hope.

Stuart is having quite a year!

The 5th qualifier for Stuart Liddell was for winning Champion Piper, the aggregate winner of the SPSL competitions last Nov.

That was the other qualifier that they added for this year.
The Masters invitational and the SPSL Champion were added and the silver chanter and the USPF were dropped.
So, the 10 events are:

The previous year's Glenfiddich Championship- Stuart Liddell
The Clasp at the Northern Meeting- Jack Lee
The Senior Piobaireachd at the Argyllshire Gathering- Dr Angus MacDonald
The Silver Star Former Winners MSR at the Argyllshire Gathering- Stuart Liddell
The Silver Star Former Winners MSR at the Northern Meeting- Stuart Liddell
The Bratach Gorm at London- Stuart Liddell
The Highland Society of London Gold Medal at the Argyllshire Gathering- Faye Henderson
The Highland Society of London Gold Medal at the Northern Meeting- Andrew Hayes
The Masters Invitational- Bruce Gandy
The aggregate winner of the Scottish Piping Society of London- Stuart Liddell

You are correct Z Piper. These are the ten Qualifying events. When there are repeat winners, which there often are ( although I cannot remember any time that one person has won 5 of the ten events) they then go to second places in an order that I cannot remember except that 2nd in the clasp, I believe is first on the rotation, and Stuart was 2nd there as well. Liz Maxwell will have the invites out probably this week and I'm sure it will be posted fast. I would suspect that Angus MacColl will be on the list being 2nd at both senior events at Oban and I believe Willie McCallum will be on for second in the Silver Star MSR at Inverness. Roddy MacLeod was third in the clasp and they may get him in also.
I got an invite one year for being 2nd in the Bratach Gorm as Willie had won a few qualifiers and was also 2nd somewhere so we'll see how it all pans out this week.
