Regional Contests ~ Registrations Reminder

With the Regional qualifying contests of the National Championships of GB fast approaching, we’ve had a number of queries about rules and timelines affecting registration of new players.
All players competing in the London & Southern Counties Regional contest in Stevenage must be registered with the Brass Band Players Registry (BBP) by Friday 10th March; the last registration date for bands in the West of England is Friday 3rd March.
Please remember that players may NOT be registered with more than one band (this includes registration with different bands under the BBP and scaba Registries), and each player can only compete in one regional contest in one year.
The relevant rules are outlined below for your information:

9 a) All players taking part in the Contest must be registered with only ONE accredited Registry at least 7 days before the Friday of the contest weekend and may only compete with the band that holds their Registration.
