Grading Tables

What do you need to know?

You add three years results together. Bands that did not compete are awarded last place points, bands that have been relegated/promoted get average points.

Does this help?

Alternatively, the L&SC displays it on their website. Perhaps your region might do the same.

I think you will find that bands which did not compete get last place points plus one.

Average points are the number of bands which competed in a particular year divided by two.

Average points are slightly more confusing than this, as I found out in the week. It's actually the Mean average as opposed to dividing the number of bands by 2.
e.g. Ten bands compete: 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10 = 55
55 divided by 10 bands = 5.5
(wheras 10 divided by 2 is 5)
In effect it is a 'middle' placing (if there were 11 bands, say, then halfway would be 6th place). Funny I know...

Also NoE area league tables are on the net
North of England Brass Band Championships

You are quite right! I was thinking on my feet when I posted, and didn't check the facts!

I was surprised to see that the North West Area Committee actually print the league tables in the programme. Let's hope the other areas will follow next year.

:wink:

You should've seen the Scottish programme, it had absolutely everything you ever wanted to know in it.
Including a matrix of every band in Scotland's results in the past 20 or so years (Including the defunct ones, poor old Kepston Q-Fab, we had a great band)

I was gutted I lost mine in the bar :cry:

I know, it's pretty impressive stuff.

Well done at the weekend by the way, I would say that's a good bit of consolidating you did there :D
