Default Where to compete - central Europe

Hello, recently I've decided to start competing. I'll be trying my (I know it's not) luck this summer for the first time and it's really strange how little I know about competitions - Could some more experienced member point me towards some info regarding Bagpipe competitions across central/east-ish Europe? Let's say (eastern) Germany, (northern)Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary?

I suppose they won't be under some other organisations/associations, maybe just a school/ band/ teacher hosting an event on some local Highland Games (There is actually a lot of H. G. in the region, you wouldn't belive!). I know about some, but I find it hard to belive there is just 1/2 competitions per year. Are there any pages (all info I have is from FB searching and luck) to look at? I know there won't be many pipers in the region, but seriously almost nothing? Heck, In that case I feel really tempted to host similar event even if it would mean inviting some referee from Scotland...

Thanks for answers and feel free to promote Your own venues!
Whatever I ask on this forum, the answer should be: "Practice more", for thats what I need ;-)

Suggest to search out PB's in FR,DE and NL for in-country games info. Also visit the RSPBA site for other possibilities/links. Good luck.
