    Ummm...I want to say Beba, but could be wrong! It was either her, or someone that looked like her!

    Yay, "we" won! And on a poor performance too :rolleyes: ... St Agnes played the piece so much better in rehearsals, and came off stage quite disappointed...they wouldn't believe us listeners when we told them we thought they'd win anyway!! But everyone went home pretty pleased in the end!

    Also a huge congratulations to St Stythians - if only you played like that at the areas! Best cornet section of the day as well - and that was without me :tongue: ! Also well done to Dennis on getting best player of the day as well! :)

    Also congratulations to St Keverne, who may have missed out on a win, but chose the most "entertaining" programme in the open section in my opinion!
