    Sorry! Can't speak, the voice has all but gone!

    A brilliant result for the band (and I was part of it!)

    Congratulations to all the other prize winners.

    ...also have a bit of a sore throat! :D

    It's a killer that we were only staying for the day and missed the announcement. We only had our contest secretary and a few supporters there come the big moment! We're thrilled with the result and will be back next year to defend it and we'll definitely be staying at Butlins this time :)

    Well done to all the other prize winners and everyone else that took part - it's a fantastic competition with superb facilities. :)

    According to 4BR, "The organisers are currently witholding the placings of bands outside the prizes."

    Does anyone know why?

    Haven't a clue. Perhaps they're waiting until all the bands have recieved their results? There were quite a few bands that weren't/couldn't stay until the results.

    Just noticed that Hatfield won the 1st section - I heard them play and was rather impressed. Excellent result from number too. Well done! :)

    Woohoo! Get in there, won by 2 points clear. Told you not to underestimate us!!

    What a great contest and an amazing weekend (even if I was in bed half the time slowly dying!).

    Only 2 weeks to my next contest now.. :) Cant wait!

    Well done to all the other winners by the way.

    Voice is still knackered and it hurts to laugh!
    Suppose it made the 8 hour wait worth it!

    Well done to all the other bands in the prizes and was good to meet a few more tMPers!

    Apologies to anyone who was sitting near us in Reds when the results were announced - we were making so much noise no one near us heard who came 1st and 2nd in the third section!

    What a great weekend...

    Full Results are now on the Brass Band World website http://www.brassbandworld.com/
    9th for us so I'm quite happy with that given the quality of bands there, though can anyone tell me who the band was who played after us (4th band on, possible Peterlee) as I ended up doing an extra stint on Sop for them :D and would love to know where they came.

    Super weekend, managed to bump into sparkly, Janet Watkins and GeordieColin (who really can talk the hind legs off a donkey ;) ) was great meeting you all!

    We sure we heared that we won, and apoligies for all of the noise and general bedlam around our area to the right of Reds which meant no-one could hear the rest of the results!!!

    One thing is that I'm sure we ended up with 182 points, not 181 like 4br and brassbandworld have accreddited us with :p But was still a great show which could have been done a lot earlier on in the afternoon!!
