If your band is competing at this contest, please remember to send a representative to the MWPBA band tent for a mandatory meeting at 10:30 a.m. each day. This meeting is held to discuss details of the band competition, as well as take attendance of the bands competing that day.
Slight changes again to the Sunday Solo Schedule; inadvertently left off a few Grade 4 Piobaireachd competitors. That is now corrected.

As most of you know, Keith McDonald, our long standing Chief Steward decided to retire after the 2017 season. Many thanks to Keith for all of his efforts in making the MWPBA a better place!
It is with great joy that we are able to announce our new Chief Steward for 2018. The new Chief Steward of the MWPBA is Sherry Sievewright. Sherry has served as one of our top Stewards for several years and has earned the position. When you see Sherry at Alma or one of the other upcoming contests please wish her well and offer your congratulations.
Welcome aboard Sherry and we look forward to working with you!
