Registration Sampling of RSPBA Bands


Media Center Image

Following concerns raised by members at the AGM in relation to bands playing non registered members at contests, the Board of Directors intend conducting a sample at the Scottish Championships at Dumbarton on Saturday 26th July 2014.

We would like to remind Members that Rule 3.6 states:

"3.6 A computer printout showing all registered Band Members of that Band for the time being will be returned to the relevant Member which must be carried by the Pipe Major or his/her assistant at all contests or competitions and shall be available for inspection by the Company representative on request."

And Rule 3.7 states:

"3.7. No person shall be allowed to play in a contest who has not been registered as a Band Member for fourteen days prior to the contest date."

Please ensure that you are in possession of the most up to date copy of your band registration printout in the event that your band is selected for the sample.

The findings of the sample will be fed-back to the Board of Directors at their next full meeting by the registrations working group.
