Some results from previous years:

What happened at the 2007 Grade IV Solo Piping Competition.
Results for the 2006 Solo Piping Competition.
Competitions will be held under the shade of dozens of tall pine trees in "The Pipers' Woods,"
which is on the west side of the festival field, near the main gate, just west (downhill) of the road.
The photo above shows the environment that the competition will be in (that was Piper Kyle Andrews competing).
PIPERS: Please submit your tune names, so that we can try to have informaion about your tune.
If you know something about the tune or want to share something interesting about yourself, we want it!
Please use the back of the entry form for this.
Also: Please send us a digital photo of you in Kilted Attire with your pipes (or piping),
and we'll try to put it on the website...why should the stage entertainers get all the website exposure?
