It is with great regret that the committee of the RSPBANI Co Antrim Section have taken the unfortunate decision to cancel the proposed championships in Glenarm Castle on the 6th September. 

This has not been an easy decision to make and is tinged with great sadness. 

We would like to thank the drum majors and bands who had entered our rescheduled event and trust that you understand our decision. 

We hope to welcome you all back to Co Antrim in the summer of 2015. 

On behalf of:
Alistair McCleery,
Co. Antrim Section Secretary
