As we are half way through the area contests some bands will now be in the position of being relegated to a lower section. However some bands that will be relegated in fact didn't have a bad result but because of previous years results they will go down... my question is this do you think this is a fair system, using a three year points system? Personally I feel that the bottom two places at the contest should be relegated, as one the day, they are judged to be the poorest performers in that section. In my opinion that means that the bands who really should go down that year will go down. Just interested in what people think of the current system and wether they think it is fair?
