Howieson Cup


Picture of the Howieson Cup

The Howieson cup was established in honor of Tom Howieson who was a Kansas City St. Andrew Society member and played an instrumental role in getting the pipe band started back in 1962. The cup is given to a member of the society, who is not a member of the band, who, in the opinion of the band, deserves recognition for their support and contributions to the society. The cup will be awarded no more than once to any individual.
