Pipes in the Park (Colchester) 10 June 2018
(Lower Castle Park, Colchester, Essex CO1 1XN).
As in the previous year to maximise the opportunities for more Bands to compete we are planning to run Quartets(Grade 4)competitions. This year there will be no Drum Major or Solo Drumming competitions - only Full Bands, Quartets and Solo Piping.

Please find the Entry Forms attached - Band, Quartets(Grade 4) and Solo Piping.

Regarding the Quartets (Grade 4) competitions there is no mention of prize money on the entry form but I can advise you of the prize information as follows: 1st 75. 2nd 60. 3rd 50. 4th 35. 5th 30

Please submit your completed entry forms by the closing date of 25 May 2018 - the draw is scheduled for Wednesday 30 May 2018. It will also be very helpful for the smooth running of the Solo Piping competitions if entries can be made by this closing date. Please send completed entry forms either to branch_secretary@rspbalondon.org or by post to Irene Samson, 2 Barley Way, Stanway, Colchester CO3 0YD. NB In the email address between branch and secretary there is an underscore not hyphen!
