Default Montana Piping Competitions

I spend quite a bit of time in Montana throughout the year, and was curious as to whether or not there are any piping competitions in western Montana. I haven't seen anything in on any of the various American piping association sites. Thanks for your help in advance!

You just missed the Bitterroot Scottish Irish Festival in Hamilton, MT. I believe it was last weekend. A google search just turned up:

The 3rd Annual Flathead Celtic Festival is September 16th, 2017. This is in Kalispell.

It's a shame I missed the Bitterroot games, it looks like they had some solo comps. I will actually be up north on the 16th of September but it doesn't look like they have any piping competitions.... But I do see a very vague "bagpipes" listed as entertainment at nine in the morning on their website.... Thanks for the help Karl!

The Bitterroot Celtic Games and Gathering (BCGG) in Hamilton is very competitive in the solo piping. Chanter, beginner, Grades IV-II and an Adult grade (age 60+.) Quite a nice piobaireachd competition as well. The smoke from the surrounding forest fires held off for the day, as well. Well run comp, with our own Celtic Hiker administering and keeping the competitors on time. A good, fun Games.
