    Other than Brass In Concert, Whychavon and Bolsover Festival of Brass, does anybody know of any other entertainment contests throughout 2012 with dates? Not bothered about location too much, but financially could be struggling to go outside the UK in 2012.

    Something with a Championship or Open section, with similar rules of around 20-25mins, etc. etc.

    scaba's entertainment contest is in Crawley on 20th May. The 'A' section is open to Chmapionship and 1st section bands. Keep an eye on the website for more info closer to the date, or you can register your interest with the Contest Manager (contact via the website).

    Other possibles for next year are Yeovil and Porthcawl, both in February.

    Anyone know the date for the DLI contest this year? Usually about a week either side of Durham Miners Gala

    Out of interest, there is a pretty good, easy to view calendar on the mouthpiece (on the bar at the top of the page). Why don't we add any contests or major events to this, so everyone can see them, and also when and where they are. Even if a mod has to approve a new calendar addition, wouldn't this be useful?

    I'm sure bands must always be trying to look ahead and see what contests and events can be fitted in around their existing list of engagements and concerts. Having an easy to view calendar with the contests listed on it would make this so much easier imho.

    PS. Yes, Hardraw is outside. I've only done it twice and the weather's been fine both times - however I'm told that there is adequate provision should the dales weather set in......
