  • All bands to play on the Friday.
  • MSR in the morning/ Medley in the afternoon P/Ms choice of which of their 2 sets in both sections.
  • All bands to play on the Saturday.
  • MSR Morning/ Medley afternoon alternate sets to be played.
  • 4 adjudicators per section, so 16 adjudicators to be used.
  • Results of all 4 sections to be taken into account to calculate the results.
  • In the event of a tie, current system already in place to be used (Rule 4.68).
