My band is going to the French Open this year again (it's our third time) and wondered who else was looking to go this year? The number of bands going from the UK seems to vary from year to year. Its a great weekend and we look forward to going each time. Not sure about the other sections but I believe the Championship Section (Elite?) set test piece is Diversions on a Bass Theme, followed by a 20 Minute Entertainment set. There's also the Open march contest and an oppportunity to play outide. Also featured normally each night is a Gala concert put on by a visiting and local band.
