    Following a conversation with fellow band geeks over the weekend, I'm curious to know why bands choose to enter particular contests?
    Why does your band choose one over another eg. miss a local contest then travel to another 150+ miles away just a few weeks later? Answers on a postcard please.....

    And I should have said in the first post,
    I'm not talking about the areas/Spring Festival where qualifications and gradings are at stake, but all the other contests a band may or may not choose to do through the year.

    Hi Alex

    I put other......... To help with the bands continued development, and also to support the organisations who put on contests. If we didn't go then the contests would simply die out.

    I was kind of taking why we do contests per se for granted though, more interested here in why we choose one over another?
