    The results today have thrown up some interesting ups and downs today especially in championship and 4th section(if my calculations are correct)
    Champ: Penclawdd (25 points) + Newbridge,Burry Port & Cwmamman (all 22points) all go down
    1st: Markham (10 points) go up; Treherbert (26 points) go down
    2nd: Tylorstown (7 points) + Deiniolen (8.5 points ) go up; Ammanford (27.5 points) + Briton Ferry (25 points) go down.
    3rd: Llwydcoed (10.5 points) go up ; Porthaethwy Menai Bridge (23 points) go down
    4th: Upper Rhondda (12 points) + Melingriffith2, Pontypool,Newport,Crwbin (all 13 points) all go up


    Again I suggest you rely on the official notification and subject to appeal etc..not on my say.

    Eventually, I thought the band played a blinder, and Gav our MD was extremely happy coming off stage (to say the least!). Very pleased to be going to Harrogate again, and well done Daniel for the best instrumentalist.

    Shattered now though, having just arrived back, but what a weekend!!!
    Well done a great effort

    Is it really likely that 4 bands will be relegated from the championship section? If not how is it likely to be calculated, obviously Penclawdd will go down but how will the fate of Cwmaman Institute, Burry Port and Newbridge be decided? Cheers

    Usually bands tied on points are separated on placings at the most recent contest.

    Interesting! 4 down in the Championship Section and 4 Up in the Fourth. Unless the committee are able to use some sort of discretion, which I doubt they will, then the promotions/relegations will be according to the rules. Hopefully there are non-competing bands who can be encouraged to have a go next year. the 3rd Section could do with a boost.

    There were 4 new entries in the fourth section this year so I hope they will return too. There are not too many in the section as it is.


    Incidentally, in the 1st section should it be Thomas Coaches Mid-Rhondda with 21 pts who are relegated. I think Trehebert last contested in 2007.

    Good point...checked rules and therefore corrected...
    Champ: Penclawdd (25 points) + Newbridge,Burry Port & Cwmamman (all 22points) all go down
    1st: Markham (10 points) go up; Mid Rhondda(21 Points) go down; Treherbert (26 points) removed
    2nd: Tylorstown (7 points) + Deiniolen (8.5 points ) go up; Ammanford (27.5 points) + Briton Ferry (25 points) go down.
    3rd: Llwydcoed (10.5 points) go up ; Porthaethwy Menai Bridge (23 points) go down
    4th: Upper Rhondda (12 points) + Melingriffith2, Pontypool,Newport,Crwbin (all 13 points) all go up


    Again I suggest you rely on the official notification and subject to appeal etc..not on my say.

    For clarity regarding this the rules state:
    e)In the sections 1, 2, 3, 4, the bands with the two best aggregate placings over the previous three years will be promoted. In the case where two or more bands tie with equal first placing, then only these bands will be promoted. If two or more bands tie with equal second placing, then these bands, in addition to the first placed band, will be promoted.
    g) In the Championship, 1st , 2nd and 3rd sections, the two bands with the lowest aggregate placings over the last three years will be relegated. In the case where two or more bands tie with equal last placing, then only these bands will be relegated. If two or more bands tie with equal second to last placing, then these bands, in addition to the last placed band, will be relegated.
    n) Any band failing to compete for three consecutive years will be removed from the grading tables at the end of the third year, prior to the determination of promotion or relegation in that section. If such a band wishes to resume participation in the contest, it will be treated as a first time entry in accordance with Rule (i)

    Congrats Al, Dave, Mog, Mart, Rob and everyone else at Ton. Nobody can say that this result hasn't been coming.

    Enjoy it!

    Don't know where we'll be next year, but I guess we might have have to try and "do a Ton" and bounce back up from First.

    Congratulations on that.
    But why have you quoted OneTonBass? Have I missed something?
