Did you know that there is no need to wait until the official orders of play come out to see who has entered an MWPBA contest?
Congratulations to the winners of the 2015 Terry McHugh Memorial Solo Piping Contest, the MWPBA Regional Solos Finals.
The winners in each grade were:
Grade 1 - Laureano Thomas-Sanchez
Grade 2 - Angus Martin
Grade 3 - Josh Cunningham
Grade 4 - Ray Morrison
Senior Novice - Alexandria Cunningham
Junior Novice - Raiden Ehrenfried
The finals were held April 25, in Palatine, IL, and judged by Tom Weithers, the chair of the MWPBA Music Board. Full results are available here.
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!
