    Any official word on the FULL line-up anyone? It's less than a fortnight away so surely it's been published somewhere (the league are champing at the bit)

    There's a Press Release on the SWBBA website claiming 33 bands, but none mentioned :(

    Same hopeless lack of info from the SWBBA,you would think they could publish a confirmed line up by now!!! Adjudicators are Dennis Wilby and Derek Greenwood

    I've taken the unusual step of contacting the organisers directly, watch this space (hopefully)

    I have had a reply from SWBBA this afternoon...

    Good Afternoon
    Thank you for the email. I have spoken to the Association Officers regarding your general betting system on brass band contests and I am instructed to inform you the South West Brass Band Association does not wish to be associated and your request for the section line-up at our forthcoming Championships is rejected.

    I think (and hope) this is just an unfortunate misunderstanding, I have replied re-assuring them that Paddy doesn't take ACTUAL bets in the form of cash and that the league is just a bit of fun. So i'm hopeful they will re-consider. No reply yet but i'll keep you informed

    :eek: It's this sort of stuffed shirted nonsense that gives contesting committees a bad name.

    Scaba Media? YRBBC? and many other contest officials I'm sure are on tMP and i've never seen any of them react to Paddy's stuff like this

    Shame on you SWBBA :mad:
