    EBBA's executive committee has decided to invite an extra band for EBBC in Belfast. The invitation goes to YBS Band. YBS withdrew from the EBBC 2005 in Groningen after a double hat trick and the unexpected withdrawal of Yorkshire Building Society financial sponsorship to the band in December 2004. The restructured YBS Band has applied to EBBA to challenge for the European in 2006. The rules of EBBA-EBBC (art. 8c) says "the number of bands in each section can be adjusted by the EC of EBBA". Based on that, the executive committee is pleased to invite YBS Band back on the European stage in Belfast 2006.
