Entries are open for the 2018 ODBBA Winter Contest. This contest takes place over two days in February, and last year had 35 bands take part. This year, the 4th, 2nd and Championship Sections will play on Saturday 24th February, with the remaining sections on Sunday 25th. Stephen Mead will be the adjudicator. Rules and entry forms are available for download from the ODBBA website (www.odbba.org). Several entries have already been received, and it's looking like this contest will be as popular as ever, so please submit your entries as soon as possible! It's a great opportunity to run out the area test pieces and get the opinion of a respected adjudicator.
