The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association (
) organises competitions and
the North East Region has its own competitions annually every spring for pipers,
drummers and mini bands. Members can decide whether or not they wish to

The Band has a formal constitution and an elected managing committee to
organise its affairs.
