    Think the top section line up is...

    Blackpool Brass
    Wire Brass
    Blackburn & Darwen
    Longridge (maybe?)
    A N Other

    That's if my memory serves me correct since Tuesday. I just remember being told there were 8 in the section but can't remember the other one.
  4. Pemberton are the A N Other!

    Rainford are going too (2nd section)

    I think you may have pitched Blackpool and Wire a bit low. Recent history indicates that bands that have played at the Nationals often do very well at Fleetwood.
    Given Wire's result last week, they stand a good chance of coming out on top here, and Blackpool may manage to shock a few.
    On their day Poulton have beaten both Longridge and Blackburn, so they may manage to upset the form book too.

    Anyway for the first time in a while I won't be playing at Fleetwood, so just wish to say Good Luck to all who will be there. Hope you get to play the perfomance you want, and get the result you deserve.

    Should be a good contest with some excellent top section pieces. As far as I know they include Quintessence (sp?), English Heritage, Hymn at Sunrise, Between the Moon and Mexico, and Un Vie de Matelot. Don't know the others, but some good stuff on show, and good to see so many bands there for a change!

    Anyone any ideas what time the top section starts? I know it's always hard to tell with Fleetwood but just wondered if the bands had been told an estimate time?

    Think top section is officially 4:30 start...so that means 5:30 at least!

    What time does the contest start in the morning? and what order do the sections go in? Have never made it there in the morning since we are always playing quite late on but as we are not playing I thought I could be a proper BOC and listen to all the sections :tongue:
