    ;) Didn't like to mention the birthday Ian - thought you'd probably stopped celebrating those a long time ago!

    You mean like contest victories ?
    Welcome back Mr Wardle, who was in charge when we won the Mineworkers 1st section in 1994.
    Kippax are back on track !
    My whole life so far has been just one huge celebration - today was the cream on the cake - life's a ball !!

    Well done to all bands who took part today, and especially to those who were in the prizes! :clap:

    I had a great day at Skegness (even if my band didn't win!) and heard some fab music. What a fantastic contest this is turning into.......

    Oh OK - I hadn't realised that the two days contests went towards the overall result. I guess that's why they didn't announce the champ section results yesterday :oops:

    Big well done to Melvin and Redbridge.

    But what on earth happened in the test piece - 187 points! :-?:-? but winning the Sunday Entertainments!!!! Curious but a fantastic result.

    And the best soloist. Waahay.

    Brilliant result :tup

    Don't think their testpiece deserved that low!!!

    Hmmm. Spoke to one of their percussionists last weekend and he said it was going great. What happened then?!?

    I heard them play. Their performance was the first time I had ever heard the piece so it could have been peppered with wrong notes for all I know. Sounded pretty good to me though.

    my dad listened to them because he knows melvin and he was saying there was a prob with the timps so there was a 15 minute delay so by the time it got to them playing they were all cold:dunno

    Not exactly sure that would have accounted for such a low mark though. Must have unsettled them - although Melvin is quite unflappable.

    Still - curious but a great result for them.

    well done Kippax!
    nice to see the band back in the prizes - I bet my old mate from the Rothwell days, Nigel Darbyshire led the line well (and shoved in the cadenza!)
