    I can't know everyone, now can I ;)
    Whitburn added...
    Maybe someone feels himself called upon to add names of bands to all competitors? (if applicable).

    I can start with most of the Belgians...
    And some of the Dutch...

    I'll be there for the final on Thursday night, and I hope any tMPers in the area will make an effort to support the earlier rounds - Monday to Wednesday, 10 - 5.30, taking place at the SA Citadel and St Chads.

    As the first round's been and gone (I believe) this is probably a little late, but best of luck to my esteemed section principal, Chris, and to Brenden and Gavin. We wait with baited breath!
    Last I heard Iain Culross wasn't doing it? Could be duff info there though! Anyway, good luck to all :clap:
