The Order of Play for Grade 4 Junior/Senior and Novice Junior/Senior competitors participating in the Kansas City Regional Solo Contest is available here. For the higher grade Order of Plays, please visit the MHAF Winter Storm site here.
A quick reminder that entries are open for all Regional Solo Qualifiers (except Kansas City, which has past its deadline) for pipers only:
These contests are open to all Amateur Grades in light music piping. The top 3 available qualifiers in each GRADE (not event) will qualify to play at the Terry McHugh Memorial Solo Piping Event to be held in Palatine, IL on April 1, 2017. This is a change from prior years, and should ensure a competitive contest for each grade.
The MWPBA is pleased to announce that The Pipe Major Ian Swinton Open Professional Solo Piping Contest date and registration are now available. Registration is $25.00 (USD), and open to all professional pipers.The event will be held on April 1 at the Presbyterian Church of Palatine, in Palatine, IL. The church is located at 800 E.
