...does a registration last? Apologies, as I'm sure this question has been answered numerous times already but I tried searching and couldn't find anything that answered my specific question. I was registered with a championship section band, and they cancelled my card, so I'm assuming that's irrelevant. I'm helping out a fourth section band at a contest on Sunday (I thought it took longer than this to register for a band, hence the confusion!), but I thought that in order to be a borrowed player, one would have to belong to a band, and in the case of the fourth section, belonging to a band either in the third or fourth section? If this is correct (and it probably isn't so feel free to contradict!), I would need to register with the band just for one contest. I am hoping to join a championship section band shortly after the contest, how long would I have to wait before I could sign for them? I'm sure there's a much more cohesive and eloquent way of asking this question but I can't think of one so I'm afraid this is the best I can do! If anyone can give me any help that would be great!
