    I googled for Whitehaven and found it in a bands engagement diary for 14th May 2006.

    And from what I can glean through searching for Malton, its early November.

    Sorry can't be much more help. :(

    Re. Holmfirth Contest 2007

    We haven't set a date as yet, mainly because the Grand Shield announcing that they're moving back a week has messed up my plans. This year we had the contest 1 week after Blackpool so as to be able to have bands that played at Blackpool come along. If we do the same next year it means that Holmfirth is the same day as Cambridge (not an issue for bands, but does affect availability of adjudicators, ooh plus ringers!), plus it is a Bank holiday weekend (I think) AND it is 5 days before whit Friday. Personally I'm not sure bands would put up with all that and attend.

    The other option would be to have it 1 week before Blackpool and hope bands will come along as a run-out.

    Perhaps people could give me their views.....

    Additionally I do apologise to all bands not involved with The Spring Festival next year for messing about by trying to accomodate people who are, but I think we proved this year that a stronger, more competetive top section is good for the contest as a whole, and something I need to take account of.

    Trying to type with your mouth?, be careful you will get bits of apple between the keys. ;-)

    The Whitehaven contest is cancelled due to loss of funding.

    OK here goes. There doesn't seem to be a single own choice contest in Yorkshire in the autumn. That seems to offer a lot more scope than squeezing it in between 2 bank holidays, areas, Easter, Cambridge, Whit Friday and the Spring Festival. OK, you've got Pontins and the Finals to avoid but that should still offer plenty of other weekends.

    Just a thought.
