This year two major events are taking place in Enniskillen.  On the 18th May 2013 the premier event will be the Co Fermanagh Championship which is taking place in the usual venue right in the heart of Enniskillen at the Lakeland Forum grounds.  On Line Entries are now open so do make sure and get them in early. 

Our event will of course be an excellent rehearsal for the slightly smaller G8 Summit international event in Enniskillen on 17 and 18 June  2013 at which  David Cameron, Barack Obama, Vladimar Putin etc are attending.

The Enniskillen Contest is in the grounds of the Lakeland Forum, beside Enniskillen Castle as  usual.  The contest arena has had to move very slightly towards the Castle this year due to the usual area being turned into a 3G Pitch. Drivers should follow Direction signs to Sligo, Belleek etc on entering Enniskillen from Belfast and the Lakeland Forum is a left turn at Bus Station just past Ernseside Shoppping Centre.  There is parking in the grounds and also in the free public car park in front of Royal British Legion.  There is also further free car parking in the car park beside Castle which is very close to contest. 

First band is on the line at 12:03 with Drum Major Dress commencing at 12:00.

The weather in Enniskillen at present is glorious and we are assurred that it is going to stay that way on Saturday so do bring your Sun Cream!

Please find attached the draw for the Enniskillen Contest due to take place on Saturday 26th May 2012.  I have now published this in an excel format

Drum Major Dress will commence at 12:00 Noon

I would be very grateful if bands kept to times for contest , this contest has one band contest arena this year and we are trying to avoid any slippage of time. Similarly I would request bands be ready for March Past as soon as contest closes.

For those travelling in Motorhomes, Fermanagh District Council do not permit overnight parking on the grounds.
