    Well done Dalmellington! It is a great event and thoroughly well-run....

    No doubt United Co-op Yorks will be back next year to reclaim their crown :oops:

    Apparently we also won the March contest?!?

    Didnt know there was one, but we got a trophy for it.

    This means we are going to have to finish out trophy cabinet in new band hall quicker than expected :)

    Cracking day out though - was my first time at Brass in the Park!!

    Thanks to Newtongrange for all their hard work organising it.

    The open contest results are on the results page of the SBBA website. I'm still working on the development section and individual prizes. For what it's worth I think Mr Ramsay called it spot on. From what I heard the hardest to separate was Jedforest and St Ronans in the 2nd section with Jed getting the nod by a single point. Maybe a shift in power in the Borders towards Jedforest given their results in last years SBBBA, this years Scottish and yesterday. The borders association can be proud that they have two such competitve bands down there, not to mention the other bands who are equally as good. Will certainly make for an interesting Borders Entertainment Contest this year. I will watch with interest unless of course someone wants to guest an Eb Bass. :)

    Well done Dalmelington.
    I take it all the junior bands were playing in with the senior bands as I noticed Barrhead were drawn 27th but only 16 placings?

    What do the numbers mean after the band name? Is it the section, draw and overall score?

    Yeah the developmant bands were in the middle, but there was also a few withdrawls.

    Another great and enjoyable weekend out, good craic, good weather and a good contest with quite a few vodkas! :tup

    And another weekend (2 in a row!) where I was playing EEb and BBb bass in different bands, thanks to CIS for letting me dep with them! Its great to have a contest with the development bands in there also, afterall they are the future of banding, hopefully we'll take our Junior band next year and let them run riot on the bouncy castles!!

    Tho, when are they going to change the massed band pieces...


    Thought that I would drop a small post to say a big WELL DONE to all the bands, especially those in the development section.

    I teach with turriff youth band who are all over the moon to have received a gold medal for their efforts. They played out of their skins on the day. This was their first contest experience and it went down a treat! Hopefully they will have been bitten by the bug and I will get a good turnout to the rehearsal tonight;-)


    BBbBass, EEb Bass, Trombone, Euphonium, Baritone

    What do you want me to play!!!!!

    Well done to all who competed and were involved at Brass in the Park 2005.

    i had a fantastic weekend, it was very hard to leave Scotland yesterday it brought a wee tear to my eye.

    Inbetween Saturday night and Sunday morning someone stole my voice whilst at Andy and Lyndsay Smith's house. If anyone finds it could they pop it in an envelope and send it to Huddersfield. It has sentimental value. Only kidding! Must have been all the singing along with the Co-op live recordings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyway, I'm waffling now. Had a great time and it was fantastic to catch up with all my old friends.

    See ya soon,

    Well done to all the bands and thanks to Newtongrange for a cracking day out! First time at Brass in the Park and looking forward to more.

    For the record, on the day, Chris Bradley conducted Barrhead and has done since April.

    Glad to hear that everyone enjoyed themselves.

    Drink? Never touch the stuff personally Stevie!

    Congrats on a great weekend of entertainment, contest was a roaring success as per usual, the mass band was great fun and a joy to conduct, if only the result was a little more in my favour......can't have it all though.

    Same again next year please.
