Please note trophies can be returned at the Branch Meeting on 25th March, Trinity Halls, Lisburn or at the Ulster Solos, Lisnagarvey High School, Lisburn on 22nd April. Please also note it was agreed at the last Branch meeting that bands and Drum Majors who haven't returned their trophies by the 22nd of April will be fined as per rule 4.72.

It would be appreciated if a list of trophies being returned could be provided as this would assist greatly with the administration process.

Please remember that Major Championship trophies should be returned to HQ and not the Northern Ireland Branch.
