The Capital District Scottish Games is sanctioned by the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA). Adjudication is done by some of the most respected names in North American piping and drumming.
Our piping, drumming, and pipe band contest follow standards set by the EUSPBA. solo competitors are assigned to a grade. “Professional” is the highest level. Numbers define the other grades – the lower the number, the higher the grade. One or more events are run in each. Competitors choose the tune(s) to be played consistent with the requirements set for the event. They must appear in highland dress, but are judged only on their music.
