I know that this subject has been raised before but with no satisfactory conclusion. I was of the opinion that the last four bands in the competition would be relegated to make way for bands on the waiting list.It now seems that at least one band in that position has been invited back to take part in this years competition.The reason given was that some bands that DID qualify for this years contest have withdrawn,thus the reason for the re-invitation, which appears to be fine. Except , there are Championship Section bands on the waiting list who have applied for a place that have not been contacted or recieved an invitation.On the face of it ,this dosn,t appear to be fair or rational. can anyone give a definitive reason or answer??
