    Dear Nigel, I hope you will accept FULL responsibility for the end of the world being caused by not having registration at this contest. ;)

    The closing date for entries to the ODBBA Winter Contest, to be held on Sunday 24[SUP]th[/SUP] February 2013 at Marlborough School in Woodstock is fast approaching. This contest, which hasn’t been run for many years, is an own choice March and Test Piece (an ideal chance to run out your area piece in contest conditions).

    The adjudicator for the day is Mr David Hirst, and the closing date for entries is Monday 14[SUP]th[/SUP] January. Because of the on-going debate about registration cards the ODBBA has decided to run the contest without the use of any registration cards, bands will be asked to complete a signature sheet prior to the contest.

    Entry forms and rules can be obtained by emailing me at nigel-hall@hotmail.co.uk

    Best wishes,

    Nigel Hall

    I've just noticed that I've got the instrumentalist prizes for Open and A Sections the wrong way round. 1983 Shield is for Section A and John Hampden Shield is for the Open Section.
