    Have test pieces for 2018 been announced yet? Normally there's information immediately after the contest - own choice all sections for 2018?

    Midlands Area Section Sizes

    I suppose there is a way of keeping it to 2 bands up or down regardless of a tie on the 3 year aggregate. If two bands are tied on points then only the most recent result would be considered.

    Midlands Area Section Sizes

    Percussionists at Contests

    The rules state "A brass player may only play ONE brass instrument, unless required by the score" - doesn't say a Brass player can't also hit a percussion part. Or are the rules different in Scotland?

    Leicester Contest 2014 - Timing Issues. . .

    It's a pre-draw so bands already know the 'planned' start times but it seems your memory of the event doesn't correlate with your recall.

    Leicester Contest 2014 - Timing Issues. . .

    That's a little unfair, based on the published times I'm sure bands drawn later have no problem going, it's the potential that the timings LBBA have given seem optimistic. Concerns have been expressed to them and they obviously believe the timings are achievable with the contest finishing by...

    Leicester Contest 2014 - Timing Issues. . .

    Has this reverted back to the original set up? "Commences: 8:45am (Unregistered) and 9am (First Section)" With Unregistered, 4th, 3rd and 2nd in one hall - 1st and Championship on other spilt now 44 and 31 between each hall - wasn't this where we were when it was first raised as a concern?
