    Hi No it is only 1st to 4th section and what I have been told is there is a good number of bands in each section this year

    Carlton Brass are planning on going in the 1st section I believe.

    Haven't been for a few years, so this should be good. It's not in Derby this year though is it?

    Maltby will be there and we have already been told our draw and an approximate time we will be playing. Why can't all contests be the same?

    Is there any reason they don't do a top sec or top/1st combined?

    Traditionally this is a contest to run out your section's area piece a few weeks before the actual area contest. A combined section would therefore be a nonsense.
    Perhaps top sections don't think they need a run out - or prefer to hold their cards close to their chest.
