Keppler said:Anything which introduces new names and styles can only be a good thing. An "Open" contest which is closed to "outsiders" is a bit of a misnomer I think.
By all accounts IBB are a class act, and should provide stiff competition to *insert your bandname here*
If this goes well, we could see the invitation door being swung further open, to potentially kick off something very special indeed.

Brian said:If it is the "BRITISH Open" or the "British OPEN" or even the "BRITISH OPEN", does not that then imply that is open to "British " Bands only or is it that it is an "Open" Contest on British soil ?
