4barsrest have the 2011 North West Regional Championship runners: http://www.4barsrest.com/news/detail.asp?id=12831 In the Championship Section, Wire brass have (as discussed extensively elsewhere) dropped out. In the 2nd Section it looks like Besses and Blackpool Brass were not relegated and are competing in the same section again. If this is right, then both Blackpool and Besses are going to have to come up with astounding results to stay in as their aggregate points are now quite high. This has now become a larger section, with 16 bands. Delph are additionally promoted, not on aggregate points but on account of winning the 3rd Section Nationals. In the 3rd Section, Cheshire Constabulary, Skelmersdale, Formby and Trinity Girls don't appear to be competing. This leaves a section of just 13. The last few years have seen 19 or 20 bands competing. 4th Section sees the addition of Mereside Brass, Onchan Silver, Wirral and the return of Port Sunlight and Rode Hall. It looks like Brindle and Valley Brass (Haydock) are not competing this year. I hope the above is right. Apologies if I have made any errors.
