    Paddy Flower is your friendly online Brass Band Bookmaker (don't worry Mr Administrator, i'm not actually soliciting bets, just a bit of fighting talk!!). I plan to offer odds on your band at any contest you wish.

    I intend to cover all major contests, areas etc but if you can provide me a reliable line-up of ALL bands competing in your section at ANY forthcoming contest I'll express my opinion in odds.

    To get the ball rolling here's my take on this year's British Open 12th September. (please note, i'm assuming that these 17 bands are all competing and no others, if you know different please give me the heads-up, thanks PF)

    Typical bookmaker offering a 119.5% book rather than 105% ;)

    Good point Laserbeam, well made. How's this then, from now on 100% (no mark-up) and I think I'd better include XLCR (good luck to Howard and team)

    Good Q Garry

    OK, Here's the odds per (lower) section of a Yorkshire win

    1st - 11/2
    2nd - 7/1
    3rd - 8/1
    4th - 10/1

    were you to put a £1 on an accumulator you'd be £3640 richer

    33-1 against Point of ayr winning the first section? That'd be worth a couple of quid.....
