    Elland best 2nd section.

    Huddersfield Brass best 3rd section

    Gawthorpe Brass best 4th section.

    Best Deportment - Lindley

    The overall result as I understand it, A tie for top spot between Hepworth and Marsden, but the result on the march was the decider, and Hepwroth took the honours.

    Also the 4th section was a tie and the same rules were observed, Gawthorpe Brass being the winners.

    A Brilliant day, there was some awesome playing from a number of bands. The sun was out, it was brill!

    Also to correct Llittle Miss. . . . Her results are right for the Overall catogary, Marsden we're the winners of the best stage march, with Hepworth taking best hymn (as she says) creating the tie mentioned above!

    A brilliant tribute to the late Brian Evans was well received by the crowd. Les Beevers conducted a scratch band made up of some of Brians former colleagues including Philip McCann who played a rousing and brilliant Post Horn Gallop. Other pieces played were Deep Harmony, Floral Dance and the Brighouse signature tune West Riding and Senator. A totally brilliant end to a totally brilliant day.

    Totally confused here,

    Hepworth are overall winners, but Marsden won the March! Did the Hymn therefore have greater importance or was it an amalgamation of points for both that placed Hepworth first.

    Does anyone have the points awarded?

    Seems like another brilliant performance by Marsden on Honest Toil to take a number of scalps on the March contest.

    Looks like anything they enter they win (won Diggle on Saturday as well I believe)

    The announcers said that it was a tie for the best overall band on the day. The award went on the overall marks for the hymn and march so Marsden's and Hepworths overall marks were the same. The overall result went on the band who scored the highest marks on the march down the road at the beginning of each performance.

    Gawthorpe also won the 4th section in this way as they also has a tie for the hymn/march, not sure who they tied with yet

    Fantastic result guys and girls. Good Effort in beating the "better" bands. From what I've heard it won't be long before you'll be heading up the sections anyway. Keep it going, or at least try too!!!

    Brighouse contest

    Well done to all who took part. The tie break was decided on the march down the strreet Hepworth playing On the quarter deck were three point clear of Marsden so took the title for the fifth year on the trot . The ponts difference in the march and hymn were the same thats why the result was decided on the road march.
