    Great to see that this Contest continues after the closure of the old venue, was it the Hippadrome?

    We'll be there.

    I think there are 6 bands in the 4th section. What's going on? Where are all these bands that took fully registered teams to the areas. 2 weeks ago? Another interesting link to the gradings thread. Shytalk, I sort of see your point. Should be a hard fought contest this one though. Some quality on show. Good luck to all.
  6. Maybe that is the problem? Some bands could be all contested out after Butlins (I know not too many NW bands were at this one), Preston Guild and the Area in quick succession?

    I agree with this. Preston before the area works as people have the chance to run the area piece. Tameside is difficult as people will be fed up of the area piece and it isnt long to get to grips with another.

    Any bands going that arent playing the area pieces?

    Nelson will be there. I believe that there are seven bands in the 4th Section. So it's an early start, it will feel even earlier with the clocks going forward!
