The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association has added to its website an information page for overseas bands planning to travel to Scotland to compete. The page outlines in detail the steps a competing band must take to register, enter and compete in RSPBA contests.
This includes joining the RSPBA, registering players and being graded, entering a competition, playing requirements, engaging transportation and accommodation, and what to do once you arrive at the band competition.
This information page should prove valuable to bands making the trek to the U.K., particularly those going for the first time. It can be found here.
