Just noticed that there are only 21 entries in the forthcoming West of England 4th section Area`s. I played in this section 3 or 4 years ago and can remember over thirty entries. It seems to me that when the powers that be choose well known "older" testpieces like Mexican Fiesta or Indian Summer, more 4th section bands decide to give it a go. Whilst I realise that lots of bands are struggling player-wise and this could be reason for the lower entry, why not get "traditional" for a couple of years and see if this "ups" the entry for arguably the most important section in the Nationals.
