Entries are now open for the ODBBA Entertainment Contest, which will be held on October 14th 2018.
There have been a couple of minor rule changes this year, which we want to alert you to.
Firstly, we’ve been asked to try having the contest in two amalgamated sections this year, instead of the one section of the previous two years. This means that the Unregistered, 4th and 3rd section bands will compete against each other in the morning, with Championship, 1st and 2nd section competing in the other section throughout the afternoon. The results of the morning section will be given at lunch time. As always, prizes will still be given to the best band in each section.
Secondly, we are now allowing unregistered bands to optionally compete in any other section than the unregistered section, if they so wish. This is because of the wide range of abilities in the unregistered section, and we hope that this will make it fairer for all the bands competing. However, there is no obligation for unregistered bands to compete in any other section than the unregistered section, if they do not wish to do so.
