favourites for this years yorkshire area contest

Discussion in '2008 National Championships of Great Britain discu' started by madandcrazytromboneguy, Jan 8, 2008.

  1. who do you think will do well this year?

    this threads directed for all the sections

    expect Huddersfield and Ripponden Brass Ensemble to do well this year, coz if we don't, we are down!
     
  2. Yorkshire Area?
    Based on current form I'm going with Grimey!
    Two Nationals in a row but here's something spooky for the form guide:

    Every time Alan Withington has done two Nationals in a row (1997-1998 Brighouse, 2002-2003 Fairey), Nick Childs has come along and spoilt the party! What odds on Nick Childs getting the Nationals Trophy this year!
    :confused:

    Seem suitable for my first post.

    I think

    Champ-Brighouse
    1st-Skelmanthorpe
    2nd-Kippax

    Hope i get them right. Might be able to come to the yorkshire's next year.
     
  4. skel were 1 of the big 3 in last yrs 1st section, i got the impression all 3 were going up to champ this time, is that not the case?

    the top 3 were so far better than the rest last year, it was almost as obvious as grimey, dyke and brighouse in the champ

    So obvious that grimey were 8th last year, dyke were 3rd.

    What odds on a Skelmanthorpe double in the first and fourth sections?

    Well if you think about it, 1st and 2nd last year in the 1st section have both gone up, and the b band came second last year and i'm sure are working hard to win

    Nope, just the top two. Stocksbridge and Pennine.

    I reckon Skelmanthorpe are a good bet, (Albeit we'll be doing our best to make sure we spoil the party!) But don't forget the bands who came down last year. (Can't remember offhand who they were though)

    Throw all that into the mix and who knows. Should be a good open contest in the first section - especially as the piece is so old-school.

    Wasn't it Brighouse, Hepworth then Dyke last year? With Grimey down in about 8th?

    I'd like to see Grimethorpe pull another win out of the hat.

    Possibly Skelmanthorpe for the 1st Section

    well not such a fan, but i do like the band after i saw them in concert in '06 (I think) in Berkhampstead, which was an excellent concert too. Although i think the most memorable moment was when one of the percs knocked the gong off the stage. sheer humour.

    I'm sure it's more than possible that you will.:p I believe you have made some quality signings recently (if my memory serves me right). :)
     
  17. i know last years champ section results turned up some different bands at the top, but overall the last few years those 3 bands, not just at the area but in the other major contests, have proven how good they are

    skel could well do a double, both bands did very well in last years area and if neither got promoted, then they could be hot favourites

    looked on Yorkshire website and Skel are favourites in first and it appears skel B have to come in the top 3 to get promoted, don't know if that's right or not.

    Any chance of giving this a rest?

    Can't we speculate about Newcastle United instead?
    I'd give the job to Alan Hope!

    (sorry)
