Indoor Contests 2019
Earlier this year we postponed our usual Minibands/Quartets/Solo Drumming event from its usual slot in April till 5th October because of the unsettled situation several of our branch bands were in at the time.

Things have improved a lot since then but it is the general opinion that an event in October would still not get sufficient response so we have decided to cancel it for this year and concentrate on organising events for the coming indoor season.
Indoor Contests 2020
Saturday 15th February 2020: Solo Piping. Venue:(TBC)
Saturday 8th March 2020: Trio Piping. Venue:(TBC)
Saturday 25th April 2020: Solo Drumming, Drum Salute, Quartet Piping and Minibands. Venue:(TBC)

All these events are open to other branches.

Entry forms, which include contact details, location address and the rules and requirements regarding each contest, and further details about the workshops will soon be available on the Documents page.

Pipe Majors or Band Secretaries/Treasurers:

This is notification of a proposed Training Course for Pipers and Drummers organised by the London & South of England Branch. Here is an Outline:

Venue: West Suffolk College, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 3TT - (See attached map)

After receiving several queries I have just been advised that Ron Paterson is planning to hold the course in the same structure as a previous training event.
3 x piping classes:
Beginners - are anyone not yet competent to play in the band. It would help if they at least know how to play all the notes and perhaps some gracings.
Band Players self explanatory

1 x drumming class:
The day will divide into sessions between 45 minutes and 1 hour long - I will supply further details when I know more.

Cost: RSPBA Members 25, non-members 45
Please let me know if any Band members wish to attend - names + contact details.
