Springfield Games entry deadline Sunday April 26


Don't miss the boat!

The entry deadline for Springfield Highland Games band and solo competition is next Sunday, April 26.

Yeah, kinda snuck up on us already, eh?

Poor T-Rex.  But, unlike Noah, the MWPBA gives 2 days grace after the deadline to get on board.


Put away your check book!

Effective immediately, all payments for band and solo contest entry, and membership registration, must be made online.  Checks are no longer accepted.

MWPBA uses PayPal for all secure online payments, and has done successfully for the past few seasons.

Removing the paper trail of personal checks cuts down tremendously the amount of administration time in managing the MWPBA finances, and keeping clear track of who has registered and paid.

Thanks for your understanding!


Just WHO is playing with THEM this season?!

Your friendly neighborhood Bands Registrar, Tad Myers, has now published the player rosters for each registered band, listing all players and Registered Instructors.  Open access to the band rosters is new for 2015.  This can be found on the Bands tab.

Please be sure to keep your band's roster up to date using the online roster manager form.

There are a few bands that have still not submitted their player roster for the season.  Get it in as soon as possible, and don't cause any more extra work for the volunteers.

You know who you are.  And, more to the point, so do we..!


Regular Season Contests

The full details of all band and solo contests for the 2015 MWPBA regular season is now available on the MWPBA Contests page.

Please take a look, and plan your summer.  If you have not yet registered as a soloist, or your band has not yet registered, please do so now to beat the rush.  You can also enter any or all contests at this time.  Please remember that you need to be an Individual Member of the MWPBA or other pipe band association to compete in MWPBA solo events.  Membership in a registered band is not sufficient.

Please pay close attention to the registration deadlines, in each case 3 weeks before each games.

Good Luck this season!
