    Does anyone know how to work out the grading tables now the regionals are out of the way

    What do you need to know?

    You add three years results together. Bands that did not compete are awarded last place points, bands that have been relegated/promoted get average points.

    Does this help?

    Alternatively, the L&SC displays it on their website. Perhaps your region might do the same.

    I think you will find that bands which did not compete get last place points plus one.

    Average points are the number of bands which competed in a particular year divided by two.

    Average points are slightly more confusing than this, as I found out in the week. It's actually the Mean average as opposed to dividing the number of bands by 2.
    e.g. Ten bands compete: 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10 = 55
    55 divided by 10 bands = 5.5
    (wheras 10 divided by 2 is 5)
    In effect it is a 'middle' placing (if there were 11 bands, say, then halfway would be 6th place). Funny I know...

    Also NoE area league tables are on the net
    North of England Brass Band Championships

    Also BFBB rules on the National Championships (including Relegation, Promotion and Grading)

    You are quite right! I was thinking on my feet when I posted, and didn't check the facts!

    I was surprised to see that the North West Area Committee actually print the league tables in the programme. Let's hope the other areas will follow next year.

    Yes, but not in the idiosyncracies of the Brass Band grading system!

    You should've seen the Scottish programme, it had absolutely everything you ever wanted to know in it.
    Including a matrix of every band in Scotland's results in the past 20 or so years (Including the defunct ones, poor old Kepston Q-Fab, we had a great band)

    I was gutted I lost mine in the bar :cry:

    You should try the SBBA site Mark - it goes right back to the 1800's!

    I know, it's pretty impressive stuff.

    Well done at the weekend by the way, I would say that's a good bit of consolidating you did there :D
