Are your bands interested in an Open competition in Flanders (Belgium) next 2005?
All sections. I'm just curious about it. nothing more. Just asking.

Maybe a chance to visit our country with your band.

Hi Paul

Not speaking on behalf of my band, but post it up - I'm sure some of the Southern bands would be interested in finding out more.

What sort of time of year is it ?

Maybe we can come and win some of your trophys instead of the other way round :-D

And not necessarily only the southern bands. From Hull we can reach Rotterdam and Zeebrugge very easily (and it's a nicer journey than to Folkestone or Torquay, for example) so Yorkshire bands who fancied an exotic weekend away might also be tempted.

I think if you could do it in August (when many bands like to tour) and have a loose rule regarding the number of day transfers (because many of the band members do go on holiday), you should get quite a good response.

The list of participants for the first Flemish Open Championships (Mechelen, 10-11 september 2005) has been announced. Especially the top two sections look very promising: All 5 Belgian Championship Section bands are taking part, and in the 1st section there is some foreign competition as well.

It's nice to see all of our top bands supporting a new initiative like this. Hopefully the contest will be a succes, so that it may further grow in the coming years!

I will keep you all informed...
