    Who is going to this contest all together? I think the championship section is goijng to be interesting this year with most of the bands involved in the 'British Open' league system i.e. Grand Shield, Senior Cup, Senior Trophy, which takes place (i think) the week after. There may be only one or two bands playing different pieces then. What do you think?

    I hate to say it but I have a feeling we will here the contest controler saying about 'I hope we never see a poor turn out like this agin!' sad but as debated so many times on here the welsh contests are in a mess. And the champion band of wales issue sparked that of some years ago.

    Your Right about this, but apparantly BTM, Cwmaman, Tongwynlais, Tredegar, Parc & Dare are all going!? Is this true? Will be good for top section if it is along with Newbridge, Treherbert and Tylorstown should be a good contest.

    Mr Timp......it seems you've forgotten your friends at Mid-Rhondda. Not surprising the state you were in on the Saturday night in Pontins mind!!!

    heard a rumour that BTM were coming back to the local arena. Would expect a good turn out as it gives the bands taking part in the spring festival the following week a useful run out

    Ah yes mid-rhondda as well. Sorry was thinking about section you were in at Swansea for some reason. Mmmmmmmmmm I wonder why I was drunk @ Pontins? Was it all the quadruple Vodka's and Double Tequila Slammers you were buying me!? LOL

    Sorry to disappoint but if Cwmaman are going to Ebbw Vale (of which we are not) it would have been in the second section

    That is not entirely true, as you have not competed in a local grading contest for 3 years you have been removed from the grading system. If you ever decide to compete again then the grading committee will decide as to which section you will compete in, probably Championship as they have done with BTM who have decided to re-enter the system this year.

    A poll for what?
  17. matthetimp

    matthetimp Member

    Some one was on about a poll for each section so people could vote for who they thought would win in the contest.

    A poll for each section would mean a thread for each section and even then, the poll, at most, could accept multiple votes, so you could choose three, but not in any order. It would be easier to just state your predictions for each section in the thread.

    Cheers 13dafl for the vote of confidence in Markham, but disappointingly we will not be there, seems it's a popular weekend for weddings etc and we got a few players missing.
