Following our latest meeting of the Co.Antrim section last Tuesday it has been passed again for this years competition, that there will be NO ENTRY FEE for DRUM MAJORS or BANDS.

So can  I appeal for all drum majors & bands to make a special effort to attend this years contest In Ballymoney RFC under the hospices of Ballymoney Borough Council. This is going to be a special day for Ballymoney as it is their annual Ballymoney Agricultral Show in the Ballymoney Showgrounds from 9am - 4pm & the Co.Antrim Championships in Ballymoney RFC.  More details will follow shortly including entry  form details...
