Morning all, I've bee thinking . . . usually a dangerous tactic i know! When going to a contest I hear conductors say - don't do this/that the chap in the box doesn't like it. for example - at butlins recently, I was asked to keep the percussion down a little because Pete Roberts isn't a big fan of our section and likes to hear brass first. I think I remember being told our own John Roberts doesn't like percussion on a contest march, so when he was adjudicating Easingwold we had the night off the stand (i'm sure JR will confirm .. . ) So, I got to thinking, what do we know about each adjudicator, what are their little bug bears that we want to avoid. I am not wanting to adjudicator bash. I wondered with our collective knowledge if we could build up some little profiles of our countrys adjudicators, rather than waiting till back stage at the draw for words of wisdom that are pointless at that stage. I'm sure some of our adjudicators on here may wish to chip in too. . Ex. I'm sure we all know Chris Wormold has a highly tuned ear for tuning & intonation.
