    I'll kick off to respond to this thread here.....

    Bestwood will definately be there!

    Good luck to all participating bands. I understand from a reliable source that Welbeck have already withdrawn from the contest. So the 4th section is now down to only 23 bands!

    Amington had a good result at the Area's last year however they have not gone up to third section yet. They'll certainly be the band to watch out for!!!

    Yup (well me excel version anyway) but not posting it, because then you will know where I have to come to stay up ;)

    See my Kibworth mates in the pub, unless the Langley contingent are in a different hostelry.

    Let's look on the bright side - our last year @ Burton Town Hall??????:p
