    I don't know which bands in particular are entered in the different sections - but the number of entries and approx timings are as follows:

    4th Section (Pre Draw) 9.30 Start, 6 Bands.
    3rd Section (10am Draw) 11am? Start, 8 Bands.
    2nd Section (12.30 Draw) about 1.30pm start?, 8 Bands.
    1st Section (2.30 Draw) about 4pm? start, 8 bands.
    Open Section - No contest (only 2 bands entered this year, so no contest held for Championship section bands this year.)

    so why not an 'Open' section with a separate prize for best placed 1st section band?
