    Choosing a contest

    Following a conversation with fellow band geeks over the weekend, I'm curious to know why bands choose to enter particular contests?
    Why does your band choose one over another eg. miss a local contest then travel to another 150+ miles away just a few weeks later? Answers on a postcard please.....

    And I should have said in the first post,
    I'm not talking about the areas/Spring Festival where qualifications and gradings are at stake, but all the other contests a band may or may not choose to do through the year.

    Hi Alex

    I put other......... To help with the bands continued development, and also to support the organisations who put on contests. If we didn't go then the contests would simply die out.

    thanks!
    I was kind of taking why we do contests per se for granted though, more interested here in why we choose one over another?
