    I thought the winner of brass in concert was supposed to be invited? I'm sure i read that somewhere at some point.....or was it the other way round.

    I'm pretty sure it was the other way around

    I think it was a reciprocal arrangement, but it may be that the invitation could not be taken up with everything else going on this year.
  5. British Bandsman will be visiting the US Open Brass Band Championships this year. Please visit our trade stand!

    Contest wrapping...an interesting day. I'd wager places 2-7 are up for grabs.

    Results later tonight.

    Personally, I think Fountain City walked it. They are really taking this three week set of contests seriously. As for 8-9, I'll not say as not to incriminate myself.

    I think Pat's copy and pasting got the better of him - in case those 8th place scores didn't make sense ordinally. The Scores for Madison should be: 309.5 (262+50-2.5pen) not that it makes any difference.
