I have seen previous threads somewhat dealing with the issue, but I'm extremely frustrated as a potential audience member at the moment. I'd like to go to the SCABA Spring Contest next week at the Hove to watch the bands. All the information I have been able to find is from tMP, ibew.co.uk and the SCABA Website (which might I add is much better than other area associations and I almost feel spoiled to have). So I found out it is an own choice test piece contest, at the Hove Town Hall, Next Sunday the 24th and that the Top Section has been canceled. However, before I drive 1.5 hours to listen to I would like to know what time it begins, and how many bands are signed up in each section and how much a ticket costs, so I can estimate what time it concludes. How difficult is it to do that? Maybe one of the reasons why audience attendance isn't that good (and this would only be one of several reasons) is because before some of these smaller contests the information isn'tpublicised. I know the Spring Festival and Europeans comingup might be a bad example because they are bigger budgeted, but at least I know where it is, exactly when things start and how much it costs. Those are pertinent questions for audience members..no?
