I, like many other students, commute every so often between my hometown and uni. I probably do this less often than many students, who often split hometown/uni time 50-50 throughout the year. Is it fair, then, that current regulations restrict students from taking part in contests when they're spending time at their hometown? It becomes even more difficult should they join a higher section band at university, too. Surely we should be encouraging younger people to take part in contests, as opposed to restricting their involvement with these stupid rules? If we're going to stick with all this registration rubbish, I for one would propose a system where on production of a valid NUS card students could register with two bands, one within a certain proximity of their hometown, and one their uni town. We must be the only musical movement with rules in place that discourage people from taking part.
