Mini-gathering #1 - Results Have Been Posted 1/18

Thanks to all of our participants and spectators who came out for our first gathering of the season. Results have been posted on Western Piping News and Results >>

*Remember - the next WPA gathering is on the 28th of January!


Mini-gatherings Dates Have Been Posted 11/27

Dates and information for this season's events have been posted.

Piping and Drumming event info here >>

Please take note of the following dates.

January 28 - Note: This date replaces February 4. The church is not available in February. We will try to remedy this situation for next year to keep our events on the first Saturday of each month, January through May.

February 4 - Since Redmond United Methodist Church is not available on this date, how about a pot luck ceilidh at Christ Episcopal Church in Seattle at 47th and Broadway? We are thinking 5pm-8pm for some playing, eating and dancing. This would be a family and friends, all ages event. If you think this is a good idea and would be interested in attending or performing, please email Laurie MacKenzie at LaurieJMcK@comcast.net . We will need some show of interest to follow through.


WPA Mini-gatherings Will Start in January 9/18

Just like last year, our WPA mini-gatherings will begin in January. We found that it worked very well last year, giving competitors a little more time to work on their tunes. Plus, starting in January gives competitors a nice warmup to the summer highland games season.

The dates have been posted

Last summer's results can be found at - Western Piping News and Results

Stay tuned for the latest information on the upcoming WPA season and announcements about local piping events.
