BCPA Knockout Season 4 – Results Update


Results Update: Congratulations to Alastair Lee, Alexander Schiele, and Andrew Bonar in the piping event, and Gavin MacRae, Graham Haddon and Grant Maxwell in the Drumming event. Final Round: Annual Dinner Saturday March 15, 2014, Scottish Cultural Center

The BC Pipers’ Association is proud to announce the second broadcast of Season 4 of “BCPA TV”.

Since February 2011 when BCPA became the pioneer in live Internet streaming of solo piping and drumming competitions, the global piping and drumming community has taken up the mantle, with the 2012 and 2013 Glenfiddich Piping Championships live broadcast on the Internet and the 2013 & 2014 Winter Storm competition live streamed.

The second broadcast of BCPA TV Season 4 will be this Saturday, February 8th Piping and Drumming Knockouts.

The session will include a video and audio stream, chat session, and social media interaction via the BCPA Twitter account.

In advance of the event, go to www.ustream.tv and create an account to participate.

At 6:45 pm Pacific Time on the day, go to ustream.tv  and search for the program BCPAKnockoutsFeb2014 or follow it live below.

The performances will commence at 7:00 pm. Note, the free broadcast is commercial supported, but there may be a “watch now” button on top of the broadcast so you can choose when to watch the commercials. Alternatively, for $3.99 / month, you can subscribe to UStream premium for ad free streaming. It would potentially cost BCPA up to 300 per event to stream on Ustream, based on the number of viewers watching, and while we are interested in sponsorship of these events, we haven’t yet gotten support for this. Look for the “Ad starts in x minutes” and “watch now” button between performances.
