B & C Grade Competition

Over 45% of the membership of the CPA is now graded C, with 30% at B, and this series of competitions sets out a platform on which pipers can compete against competitors of similar ability and track records at B and C grade levels. It is effectively an extension of the existing CPA B grade competition league.

These competitions are :

  • Duncan Johnstone Memorial Piping Competition - separate B & C grade streams - Piobaireachd and Light Music.
  • Highlands and Islands Music and Dance Festival, Oban - separate B & C grade streams - Piobaireachd and Light Music.
  • Blair Atholl - separate B & C grade streams for Piobaireachd, open Light Music competition.
  • Rosneath - separate B & C grade streams for Piobaireachd and Light Music.
  • Inveraray - separate B & C grade streams - Piobaireachd and Light Music.
  • Perth - separate B & C grade streams for Piobaireachd, open Light Music competition.
  • Cowal - separate B & C grade streams - Piobaireachd and Light Music.
  • Chatsworth - separate B & C grade streams - Piobaireachd and Light Music
  • Blairgowrie - separate B & C grade streams for Piobaireachd, open Light Music competition.
  • The Captain John MacLellan Piping Championship - separate B & C grade streams - Piobaireachd and Light Music
  • London - separate B & C grade streams for Piobaireachd and Light Music

There will be a league scoring system for each grade and points will be awarded for placings. An overall winner of each grade will be awarded at the end of the year.

We are extremely grateful for the support of the Games' committees at these events for their agreement to establish these competitions. We are also extremely grateful to Glenfiddich who continue to sponsor the B and C grade events at Blair Atholl, Rosneath, Inveraray, Perth and Blairgowrie.

Colin Campbell has assumed the responsibility of B & C grade competition administrator on the CPA Executive. We are very hopeful that further competitions will be established to extend this competition level.

For further information, please contact Colin through the CPA Secretary.
