Scottish banding had a premiere this weekend . . . in open adjudication for the Scottish Open and the Scottish Shield. Needless to say the intimidating black box wasnt in sight, but instead an xfactor style panel of adjudicators with some beady eyes. It was interesting to watch them as they worked because they seemed intrigued and captured by what they saw and the results were a very fair reflection of how the bands played. My only concern is if this becomes more frequent , there could be an issue of "match fixing"!! How did people rate this open adjudication??
