    Unless it has changed, it is open adjudication anyway.

    Just to clarify . We stated in the rules that adjudication will be closed. Also bands can borrow players from bands not members of the Assocition.

    Best of luck everyone

    Just to add a bit of info, the contest is in open format and is pre-drawn (we know our draw but obviously can't publish it). I think it is down to 9 bands now too.
