It seems like the scourge of all band contests and contests these days is actually being able to park somewhere fairly close to the venue or maybe accomodation without having to remortgage the house in the process. I'm thinking especially of the Open and National coming up in particular. This website ( www.spareground.co.uk) seems to be generating a lot of interest and maybe worth checking out. I suppose band rooms could also be hired out too for various purposes too if you're lucky enough to own your own. We all know how tight money is for us all these days. Seems like a good idea to me.
