    Just wondering if anyone knows the competing bands this year for Preston contest on 3rd Feb. I have been told there are sixteen bands in the third section which personally I think is a brilliant turnout so close to the areas!!!

    Denton will be there in the 4th section :) and Uppermill will be in the 3rd section. presuming your playing Cookie then that would also mean Oldham Band Lees are there in the 3rd section :)

    Blackley are playing in the 4th section and Greenfield are competing in the 3rd section (so i'm led to believe).

    I'm hoping for a more sober preston this year, I couldn't stand 2 years ago and last year I left my house keys in Yates'...nice!

    Are you sure we weren't seperated at birth! lol, sounds suprising similar to me...although I should really be more responsible! Ah well i'll be at work the next day so no chance of me being worse for wear.

    Back on topic:

    Does anyone having any timings for the sections? I know the 3rd section starts at 9 and is pre drawn but i'm not sure if the 4th section starts at 12 or 2? If anyone knows it would be of great help.
