    Have a look at Paddy's Northern Area thread. That has the bands in the right sections I think.

    Hi

    York Railway Institute Band are in the North of England Area 2nd Section, however they do not seem to appear on any of your section tables.

    Should points in the table not be awarded for the strength of the competing bands also?! I would say its harder to win a contest with 5 bands in such as Cory, Fodens, Dyke, Brighouse etc....then win a contest with 10 bands in with a lesser field. Quality not Quantity! Just thought I would ask

    Interesting idea - I'm still a bit confused about what contests you count though, I noticed that the ODBBA contest in Feb results weren't included, though the bands were largely competing against their section gradings? I guess this was just a mistake it was missed?

    Good luck with this!

    The (perceived) strength of the field will not alter the point system - if you perform against Black Dyke or Joe Bloggs Brass etc, this would not make a difference.

    There weren't enough bands at the ODBBA contest; the league only awards points for contests with 5 or more bands.


    (and I know its the wrong thread but what the h*ll.... HUGE congrats to you and Regent for your result on Sunday Alan!! )

    Doh - I didn't read this properly at all!

    Huge congratulations to you guys too - I've always thought you have a really cracking band at Friary and I'm so glad that your hard work has been rewarded!
