    Eight things you (probably) didn't know about http://brassbandresults.co.uk/:

    - Today, we have 108,078 distinct contest results. 75,929 of them have placings.

    - You can see a map of bands taking part in any contest. See the link on the Geography tab - try the one at http://brassbandresults.co.uk/contests/delph-whit-friday/2012-06-01/ It's also interesting to see the map for old contests and see what happened to the bands since - the section shown on the map is their current section. http://brassbandresults.co.uk/contests/national-mineworkers-fourth-section/1993-11-20/map/ is a good example - some bands are now in the first section, others are extinct.

    - You can compare conductors with each other. Pick two conductors at brassbandresults.co.uk/compare/conductors/ - Nick and Bob Childs are extremely close (http://brassbandresults.co.uk/compare/conductors/nicholas-childs/robert-childs/)

    - The full map at http://brassbandresults.co.uk/map/ contains nearly 3,500 bands (Thanks Dave). Pick any region at http://brassbandresults.co.uk/regions/ to see a map of just that region. You can search the map at http://brassbandresults.co.uk/map/search/

    - You can build up your own contest history on the site. Once you've done this it'll tell you when you've played particular pieces, or when you've been adjudicated by a particular adjudicator.

    - Conductors, Adjudicators and Composers can support the project and personalise their page with a low cost paid profile. See http://brassbandresults.co.uk/conductors/ray-farr/ for an example. Click the Personalise This Page button on your page to add a profile.

    - Bands can also take control of their page with a low cost paid profile, and advertise concerts and player vacancies. See http://brassbandresults.co.uk/bands/rothwell-temperance-band/ for an example. This also gives you access to a tool which will let you submit news to multiple brass band news publications. Click the Personalise This Page button on your band page to add a profile.

    - We have many programme covers on the site, including some old contest programmes. Here's the full Crystal Palace programme from 1933, http://brassbandresults.co.uk/contests/crystal-palace-grand-shield/1933-09-30/programme/

    Enjoy,

    Tim.
