2017 Champions Supreme Points - Alma Clarification

Just a point of clarification for all. At the 2016 AGM, and captured by the official minutes, the majority of voting members agreed that double Champion Supreme points were to be awarded at the Alma 2017 band contests due to the fact that there are significant prize monies awarded for each day of competition for their 50th year. There is no change to the points awarded for solo events.

This was later ratified by majority of the Advisory Board for 2017, and is in effect and reflected in the latest Champion Supreme points standings, and also detailed in the FAQ.

Additional rules revision for 2017

At the MWPBA AGM on November 5, 2016, the Music Board recommended changes to the tune requirements for certain Open Piping and Amateur Grade 2 Piping contests. The membership approved these rules changes. However, at the ANAPBA Summit in January 2017 most associations reported that they had not yet adopted these changes. To keep the MWPBA in line with current practice in most North American Associations, the MWPBA will suspend certain of these rule changes for the 2017 season.

Therefore, the 2017 requirements for the following events are:

  • Open Solo Piping: 6/8 March Event and Hornpipe/Jig Event - submit 3 tunes each, play one of each
  • Grade 2 Solo Piping: Strathspey/Reel Event, 6/8 March Event and Hornpipe/Jig Event - submit 1 tune each

These changes have been incorporated into the official Rules for 2017. This information was first shared on the MWPBA mailing list on March 8.

 

Alma doubles travel expenses for 50th year games!

The Alma Highland Games has doubled the travel money award for this year in celebration of their 50th Anniversary.

The minimum is $300 up to a maximum of $1200, and as usual is split 50% for each day. Alma should be really good this year with three Grade 1 bands and three Grade 2 bands so far registered to compete, along with some world class open grade players in the solo contests.

If you or your band is any way on the fence about attending, take a look and we hope to see you there at the classic MWPBA season opener!
