How is the Draw Conducted?

Band order at the Dublin Festival of Brass is a modified double-blind draw.

Bands Choose Their Half
All bands are able to express their preference to be in the first or second half of the draw.  Bands that travel furthest get their preference met first, until there are no more spots available in the first or second half of the draw.

Drawing for the First or Second Half
If both the first and second half are not full, the names of bands that have not expressed and interest are then placed in a bucket (well a Crown Royale bag).  In another bag is put a placeholder for each first and second half vacancy.  These place holders are labeled first or second.

One by one a band name and a placeholder declaring first or second half are drawn until all bands are either in the first or second half of the draw.

Drawing Final Order
All first half bands are placed in one bag.  All potential first half draw numbers are placed in a second bag.  A band and a draw number are selected until each band is assigned a draw in the first half.

The process is repeated with all second half bands put in one bag, and all potential second half draw numbers placed in a second bag.  A band and a draw number are selected until each band is assigned a draw in the second half.
