    I'll kick off to respond to this thread here.....

    Bestwood will definately be there!

    Good luck to all participating bands. I understand from a reliable source that Welbeck have already withdrawn from the contest. So the 4th section is now down to only 23 bands!

    Amington had a good result at the Area's last year however they have not gone up to third section yet. They'll certainly be the band to watch out for!!!
