Hi Greg -
I go every year.
The info should be up soon - they aren't the best at promoting the event online, but they do post a schedule and link to buy tickets on facebook. Last year they posted the order of play, and tune selections of the competitors. You can always buy a ticket at the event.

Usually on Saturday in the morning there is a piping competition for Grade 1 players. After lunch, at about noon, the open level Piobaireachd begins. After a break at around 5 (usually just enough time to grab a bite to eat in the hotel restaurant), the medley competition begins. The medley draws a bit of a crowd; the piobaireachd not as much (overall attendance has been growing, but there are always available seats). Lately they've added a World's drumming qualifier, probably on Friday evening.

There are also some vendors, raffles, and whiskey tasting in the next room
