2017 Champions Supreme Points - Alma Clarification

Just a point of clarification for all. At the 2016 AGM, and captured by the official minutes, the majority of voting members agreed that double Champion Supreme points were to be awarded at the Alma 2017 band contests due to the fact that there are significant prize monies awarded for each day of competition for their 50th year. There is no change to the points awarded for solo events.

This was later ratified by majority of the Advisory Board for 2017, and is in effect and reflected in the latest Champion Supreme points standings, and also detailed in the FAQ.
