Busy bands on the contest stage!

28 Dec 2013

The rankings are calculated based on contest results over a rolling 36-month period and the ranking points tally is effectively a weighted average of the points earned per contest.  The number of contests actually played by each band varies a lot though but the 'busiest band in Britain' title (for contests, at least) goes to Tredegar, with a whopping 21 contests over the last 3 years!

Of the bands currently ranked in the top-100 of the rankings, 23 of them have contested a minimum of 15 times during the 3-year rankings period as follows:

21 - Tredegar
