Pipe Bands Queensland runs competitions for pipe bands at all skill levels, across six grades. We encourage all bands to compete as much as possible — there is no better way to challenge yourselves as a group to improve musical performance, raise the collective level of our musical ability, catch up with other bands, and continue to foster and grow a supportive and fun pipe band community. Pipe Bands Queensland oversees that the national set of rules and regulations for pipe bands are applied fairly to competitions that we administrate — this assures competitors that rules, standards, and judging are applied as consistently as possible across Australia, and are consistent with international standards particularly the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association. Bands are graded by judgements of their skill level, generally according to results from past competitions. PBA takes its band grading duties very seriously for two reasons — firstly, because competing against bands who are far above or below your own skill level is not valuable; but more importantly, to maintain grading standards with the rest of the world, so that our players can compete well at any competition, whether in Australia or internationally. While competition is a fantastic way to challenge yourselves as a group to improve, it is certainly not the only way. See our Education page for more information about sources of this kind of tuition and support, or contact us for suggestions. First, to compete in events that are administered by Pipe Bands Queensland, you will need to join as a member.
Our primary focus is to support Queensland pipe bands — by administering rules for competitions; supporting and partnering with piping events; and supporting education to raise the standard of piping in drumming in our region and beyond. Our committee is here for our members, and we are always seeking feedback on how to make our association stronger and of better service to you. We are also strongly committed to involving the broader Queensland community in our pipe band way of life, to raise awareness and interest in piping, drumming, and Celtic music.

The important part of finding a partner to marry does not, in my opinion, revolve around whether or not you are of the same religion. Thank you for pointing this out. But there will still be a lag of several days where I feel like I'm checking my phone constantly waiting to hear from him. But remember that it is also your wife's choice to obey or disobey, and that you have no authority over her as a person, either.
