Can any band wishing to play up a grade at the Ards and North Down Championships in Bangor please update the higher grade tunes on their band page and then contact the Branch Office to have their entry processed?
Band Admins/Secretaries will notice a drop down box on the tune tab of their band page. This will default to the band's current Grade but also has an option to select one grade higher. Select the higher grade and add the necessary tunes. Remember that the band must meet the playing requirement for the higher grade with regard to time limits etc.
Once the higher grade tunes have been added, contact the Branch office on 02892670445 or email@example.com to complete the entry for Bangor. We are testing our system internally for Bangor and will hopefully be in a postion to make it available to Band Admin/Secretaries next week for all the remaining competitions where 'Playing Up' is permitted.
Closing Date for 'Playing Up' in Bangor is the same as for normal entries (Monday, 2nd May at 12 Noon).
