Top North American Pipe Bands - update!
 
Ok, team. I need some assistance. I'm up to my eyeballs at work—seems the story of my life—and don't have time to dig to review this page which is sorely in need of an update.

If one or more of you has time to poke around the web—or maybe you just know—please post in this thread changes that need to be made for this page and I'll get about updating this week:

Thanks!

Peel is now in Grade 2 from Grade 1.
Midlothian is back in Grade 2 after a bit of rebuilding in Grade 3.

Cameron Highlanders of San Diego have a G2 band.

LA Scots are now down to G2 from G1.

Quite a few things, from what little I know:

Grade 1, EUSPBA
- Oran Mor is no more (sorry, couldn't help it)
- City of Wash. is also defunct, to my knowledge
- Sadly, I thought LAScots were the only G1 band in the US, but I guess they aren't either, now?

Grade 2, EUSPBA, additions, according to the EUSPBA site
- Atlanta Pipe Band - https://www.atlantapipeband.com/
- City of Dunedin Pipe Band - http://www.dunedinpipeband.com/
- Great Lakes Pipe Band - http://www.greatlakespipeband.org/
- MacMillan Pipe Band - https://macmillanpb.org/
- New York Metro Pipe Band - http://www.nymetropipeband.com/
- St Thomas' Alumni Pipe Band - http://www.stapipeband.com/
- Worcester Kiltie PB - http://wkpb.org/
- (MANCHESTER) ... now is Grade 3 - http://www.manchesterpb.org/

Stewart Highlanders ... I'm unsure of their current status.

Does Alberta Caledonia still exist? Haven't heard anything about them in close to a decade now.

And I think James Coyne Memorial is also defunct. There's nothing about them on the WUSPBA page anymore.
