Which competitions are taking place?

For the very first time in Germany the B.A.G Winter Competition in Bremen will be offering a practice chanter competition for pipers who have just started and are unable to play the pipes at the level required for the usual beginner level piping competition.
Furthermore, the B.A.G. Winter Competition will also offer solo competitions for drummers – snare, tenor and bass drumming - and for drum majors.
The Saturday will be rounded off with quintet competition in Grade 4 marches, open medley and open MSR.
