At the conclusion of each season the Music & Grading Committee review the results of the seven ASPD sanctioned competitions (Ogden Legion, Red Deer, Edmonton Scottish (Ellerslie), Fort Edmonton, Foothills, Calgary and Canmore) to determine Individual members and their grade placing..  During the season Judges are asked to adjudicate each performance and provide a performance rating for each Individual player.  This rating combined with committee member  input are considered when determining grade promotions.

Appeal Form

Members who feel that their assigned grade is inappropriate are encouraged to complete a Solo Competitor Appeal Form.  

The Music & Grading Committee will then review your form and inform you on their final decision for your designated grade.

Please email all documents to the Music Committee at email address

Good luck to all competitors for the 2016 season!
