    3rd division: Lydian Pictures (Simon Dobson)
    2nd division: Kaleidoscope (Philip Sparke)
    1st division: James Cook – Circumnavigator (Gilbert Vinter)
    Championship section: Checkmate (Sir Arthur Bliss arr. by Eric Ball)

    Quite a surprising choice, but there had been rumours going round that the champ section test piece would be an "oldie"

    usually the last weekend of November

    Championship section will probably be:
    - Willebroek
    - Buizingen
    - Festival
    - Metropole
    - Noord-Limburg
    - Kortrijk
    (maybe also Young-Willebroek, cause they had the right to promote)

    The other sections can very (depends on who decides to enter) Last year we had
    Liege and Zele in 1st section (together with Young Willebroek), Heist, Leieland, Smeermaas, Panta Rhei Ghent and Mons in 2nd and Flugelbrass and Retie in 3rd

    I think Heist may promote to the 1st section (maybe Bert can confirm this?) and Flugelbrass recently changed its name (after an internal dispute)

    I usually just pay at the door... The hall is usually filled quite well, but not completely full.
    The date is 30 November by the way, I just checked. In the Royal Music Conservatory of Brussels (halfway between the royal palace and the "palais de justice", the court building)
