As per the VBL rules, bands may not play any winning piece for a period of thirteen (13) months unless subsequently chosen as a test piece. As the test pieces have been announced prior to the Bendigo Eisteddfod, any band who chooses to play the relevant test piece for their grade at the Bendigo Eisteddfod and subsequently wins will be ineligible to compete at the State Championships.
The official schedule will be released and entries will open on May 19th 2014.
The VBL wishes all bands the very best in their preparations for the State Championships.
