    I think my band, Littleborough Public, has already entered. I'm looking forward to it, the first time I'll have been either as player or MD. How many bands on average do you get?

    See you on the 17th!

    yeah we had 7 bands last year in the 3/4 section, and we'll be there this year too! We are also trying to arrange with Alan that he can use our large percussion for the day so bands don't have to cart loads of gear about, watch this space.

    Also just to say what a really great contest this is, smoothly run and well officiated. And the prize money's ok too! Last year I think £300, £200 £150. Which is pretty good compered to some contests.

    See you all there.
