    Excellent to think that this is going to be your band's first contest. The atmosphere will be superb and I am sure everyone will be pleased to have a new band at the contest. In fact I think another band, the City of Exeter Railway Band will be doing the contest for the first time too - only their 2nd contest in many years. Its is a very relaxed contest and an ideal springboard for a new band to enter the contesting arena.

    I will definately try and come and listen to yourband if our performance times allow. I think 15 bands have entered.......we could try and name them all. I know my band Lympstone are going...but also Torbay, Sidmouth, City of Exeter Railway Band, Hayle, Soundhouse (?) - (South Molton, Tiverton, Bideford were there last year too).....if anyone has the full order perhaps they could post it on here. Failing that I will try and get it from our secretaryand post it on here asap.

    I know your band wil enjoy it and I am sure I speak for the whole of Lympstone and probably the whole of SWBBA region when I wish you good luck. I am sure competing bands will give you all the support you need. If you need to borrow rehearsal facilities or percussion on the day we may be able to help with that too.

  3. Hi
    Thanks for the support and offer of help,
    It is wonderful to see bands pull together,
    You may of seen on the news when my band had every bands worst nightmare, Our bandroom burnt down in March this year and we lost a lot of stuff.
    The amount of bands in Cornwall and devon that where on the phone to me and e-mail offering support was imense, what a great organisation we all belong to.

    Camelford 1720-1745
    City of Exeter 1110-1135
    Heyl Town 1330-1355

    mmm, sorry to be a kill joy - BUT is the contest open adjudication? If not, it not be that wise to list the running order.
    Best of luck to all competing bands

    The draw and details have also been announced on 4barsrest.com so I think it's ok to have them on here!

    Wow........... the contest is Saturday and I haven't been to band for three weeks (I have been sunning it in the south of France).....band tonight though so may get the cornet out later!!

    Was a really hot day last year so lets hope for more of the same this year. Should be a good day. Good luck to all bands........see you there!!

    Majorsteve...I feel a little embarrassed now too!!

    Did try to explain yesterday but cider had kicked in .........

    Winner of the soloist prize WAS NOT ME.............it was won by Scott Burton our flugel soloist who played outstandingly.......I wish I could play that well, I had never been on stage to get a cup so the band said I could get the trophy if Scott won because he had gone home. Sorry for any confusion everyone!!
