but if the 'doors being swung further open' why bother having a system such as the grand shield, senior cup n trophy... might aswell all be invitation only.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.
ah no it's ok... your probably thinking of the Master's in Cambridge.Keppler said:I'm sorry if my facts are wrong... I was under the impression that the open *was* invitation only...
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 ?
