As we continue to progress towards the 8th South American Pipe Band Gathering, the Association agreed to a few more changes and updates to the competitions rules:

The first was an edit to the dress code for highland dancers, wherwe are now clarifying that the headgear is optional (as is also the case for sporrans).

Second, we now have listed the number of parts for each tune type, applicable for solo piping and drumming, as well as pipe band competitions.  This addition also clarifies on how tunes can be combined for categories that require a number of parts for each tune-type.  Mode details: Competition Categories.

Last, but not least, we have expanded and detailed the rules for March and Deportment competitions.  The G7 hosted the first of its kind, and these new rules now complete this competitions category in time for the M&D competition at the G8.
