Over the last couple of years the numbers of bands promoted/relegated has been changed from the standard two, to try to even out the higher sections in the grading tables, e.g. 4 were promoted from 4th, so 3 could be promoted from 3rd to 2nd to try to even the second section up in line with the first and third sections. However from looking at the promotions/relegations due in Jan 2015, it appears that 3 are being promoted from 2nd to 1st and 3 are being relegated from 2nd to 3rd, which means once again the 2nd section will only have 12 bands, compared to the 17 in the 1st section and 18 in 3rd section, which totally undoes the rearranging from previous years. Do we need to have an extra band promoted from 4th and 3rd, to try to even the sections out or just leave it as it is, or maybe only one should be relegated, seeing as the other two are on equal marks, which is why there are 3 intended to be relegated in January. What do other people think?
