    They couldn't have made it more obvious if they'd put "This is an April Fool" at the top in big bold letters!

    The Penguins video is brilliant. The draw thing made me chuckle.

    There's nothing wrong with a little innocence these days.. !!

    Actually, I think it's a good idea - it's a royal PITA having to get up early and get to the Albert Hall in time for the national anthem just in case something goes wrong and Dyke draw no. 1 ...

    Had me going for a little while :redface:

    Thing is though, it wouldn't surprise me at all if a system like this was introduced. I mean, who'd have thought that a participating bandsperson would need to purchase a ticket to go in for the results?!?!?

    It would never work. You need a random spacing of intermediate bands to nip out for a pint.

    We had a band 'meeting' on Tuesday and whilst searching for something on 4bars one of our players (nameless of course, all I'll say is he is from the lower end of the band, can't have such a story connected to us cornets!) shrieked "Look what they want to do with the Nationals - oh they can't do that!!" which was met by much ridicule. To make it worse though, when asked what day it was he answered "I don't know - whenever the nationals is!" - it took him three attempts to suss out the 1st of April bit!
