    Hi All

    Anyone know the date for the Leicester Open this year - I'm assuming it will be November time ? Need to know before I plan a social event that might otherwise clash ! Have tried e mailing the various contacts on the Association's website but my computer is not having it.

    Many Thanks

    So who else is going? Could be a very short day if there is just one band.

    I won't buy any polish just yet, then! Nice to see the contest so well-supported and nice to see two of my old bands (Soham and Cambridge) attending - best of luck to them.

    I'm glad we're not in the 1st section - looks like a real marathon!

    Will be my second year there - was impressed by the organisation last year , and helps having everything reasonably compact at the school / college.

    Just hope the bar does not run out of beer again , although the working mans club over the road did very well out of that !!
