With the Europeans upon on us, thought we could start a bank of predictions. Maybe a mod could set up a table similar to that used for the Area Predictions contest? Guess the top six and maybe have a stab at the total points too....two pieces, 100 points available for each one which makes...hmmmm...200 points maximum score. Here's a list of bands: Championship Section Belgium Brass Band Willebroek Conductor: Frans Violet Denmark Brass Band Lyngby Taarbaek Conductor: Ray Farr England (Defending Champion) Yorkshire Building Society Band Conductor: David King England Fairey FP (Music) Band Conductor: Allan Withington France Brass Band Normandie Conductor: Philippe Gervais Netherlands Brass Band De Waldsang Conductor: Rieks van der Velde Northern Ireland First Old Boys SeaCat Silver Band Conductor: Stephen Cairns Norway Stavanger Brass Band Conductor: Steve Bastable Scotland Scottish Co-op Band Conductor: Nicholas Childs Sweden Brass Band Gothenburg Conductor: Bengt Eklund Switzerland Brass Band BML Lucerne Conductor: Ludwig Wicky Wales Buy As You View Cory Band Conductor: Robert Childs I will stick my neck out and guess as follows: 1. Cory 193 points 2. YBS 192 points 3. Fairey FP 190 points 4. Willebroek 186 points 5. Stavanger 183 points 6. Scottish Co-Op 181 points No formula here - just pure guess work and judging on recent form. Sure YBS will be awesome but just have a funny feeling Cory may come out on top after missing out so narrowly last year. St Magnus is a very very tough test on first impressions and after listening to a number of Cory's contest performances in recent years, their preparation seems absolutely meticulous, I think maybe they may pip YBS. Who knows? I will probably be way off the mark but worth a go. Anymore?
