The MWPBA has completed our first in-person contest of the season; thank you to all the competitors and adjudicators for making the event special! Hopefully everyone enjoyed our on-line presentation of the event as well.
The results can be found here.

Here is the Order of Play for the Terry McHugh Amateur Piping Contest, held at Hope Community Bible Church, 1266 N. Northwest Highway, Park Ridge, IL.
Note that Grade 2 & 3 solo pipers will play their 2/4 March and Strathspey/Reel selections separately, as in prior years. However, in order to minimize foot-traffic and people in the building, those players will be playing both sets in the same room, with a break between the March and S/R. They will play each set before a different judge, and will have time to re-tune between the sets.
Band Managers - we've extended the deadline for updating your competitive band rosters to July 1, 2021. We're hoping to have our first band competition on September 4 in Waukesha, WI.
Remember, all bands that registered with the MWPBA for the cancelled 2020 season were automatically re-registered for the 2021 season, for free. If you're not sure of your band's status, check here.
The entry is now open for the Terry McHugh Memorial Amateur Piping Contest, held on May 1, 2021 at the Hope Community Bible Church, 1266 N. Northwest Highway, Park Ridge, IL (same location as 2019, but new name of church).
Entries will close on April 16th.
You will be assigned a specific time to arrive and a time to play well before the event. We look forward to seeing you LIVE & in-person. The Piping Scholarships will be awarded to the top 3 Grade 3 placings that are under 18, and the top placings in Grade 4 Jr. The results will be announced on-line, as we can't have any large gatherings. Let me know if you have any questions. Lets get those entries in. Stay safe!!!
Here is a trailer for the 2021 Winter Storm Concert broadcast, set to debut on March 27th. The 100 minute video concert will be free. Look for it then.
