Championship Discipline:
By proceeding you agree to the "Discipline at Championships and Contests" rules which include:

  • Bands, when asked, will be required to play for Drum Majors Contests. Failure to comply will result in disqualification
  • All bands will remain in position on the park until completion of prize giving unless previous permission is granted

Bus Parking:
Payments for Bus Parking will still be required manually as these are now to be sent directly to the local authorities and not the RSPBA.

Once you have completed your entries you can download the Bus Forms from the menu system inside 2017 Info or via the Calendar as in previous years.
