    Also, which of these venues would be a good place to finish? Any good points for venues over others e.g access, how busy, good food/drink facilities etc

    Broadoak, Carrbrook, Hurst, Heyrod and Denton Cricket Club all have third section prizes andDenton is an excellent place to finish as they have a large bar, easy parking and its close to the motorway for going home afterwards.

    Hope you have a very good evening.

    Can anyone please explain how the marking system works for the four different sections.
    If there are different sections and we are all playing at the same venue how does the adjudicator know which section is currecly playing or are we all marked as we perform and then the list is checked out and the top marks for each section are then the winners.
    If this is the case does it then mean that a fourth section band can gain more marks than a three or two section band but will still be placed in the fourth section.
    The section you enter in is that the section that you will stay in at the conclusion of the marking sutem. Thank you for any info on this point.

    Yes
    Yes
    and Yes

    The adjudicators don't (or shouldn't) know which bands are playing (that should start a good set of comments).

    So all the bands are listed by playing order i.e band played No 5 could be placed 45th. Presummably the invigulators then list the band names in order and sort out prizes to suit (lower section bands can of course come higher in the ranking than any other band playing)
