Multiple Dynamic drop down Lists

I am creating a sporting club website. On my nominations page, I have created a dynmanic drop down list with the parent list displaying a list of available competitions (ie night / venue).

This list then populates a second drop down list box showing all of the available divisions that are being offered in that competition. (ie comp 1 offers mens, while comp2 offers Mens, Mixed, Womens).

When you select Comp 1, the divisions list only shows Mens, Select Comp 2 and the 3 divisions are shown.

All Working great.

What I want to do is to add 2 x Read Only Text boxs associated with the 2 Dynamic Menu List boxs, that displays some additional information about the selection.

1. When a User selects Comp 2, the first text box would display information about the venue for Comp 2 (ie Street Address etc)

2. When the user then selects one of the divisions (say Mens) the 2nd text box would display information regarding the Mens Division (e.g. "Mens Ages upto 35")

So I can Dynamic Drop Downs populate 2 different elements, or is there another way to populate a 2nd text field based on the selection in the list box.
