    As usual the Southern areas are the last to go. We in the L&SC area have 5 weeks to our contest, and the SW have 6 weeks. Loads of time for practice:wow

    Prediction competition is in preparation, and should be up and running before the first Areas take place.

    Don't worry i'm sure that there are lots of bands in all the sections in exactly the same position...the pieces are well hard this year!

    We're the weekend of 19th / 20th, so perhaps we're one of the last?

    Second last. SW is always the last 26/27th, hence them never getting a decent hotel for the finals

    We have not really started on it yet, just getting bits and pieces sorted out,but each practise you know its getting better all the time as the confidence grows within the band.

    We have got a section prasctise for 4 HOURS sunday 13th BARIS- BASSES.
    Yes that= 2 nights of normal practise rolled into one:clap:
    After last year and the results we have had since march 2004 we are that determined to do well and put the disapointment at the back of us after playing well and not been in the prizes, at the contests we have gone to, the mood in the band is very high and full of confidence with each and every player.

    No it isn't. It was my birthday the day we went to Butlins and would you belive Stan FORGOT!!!
    He then tried to make it better by going and buying me a card. The only trouble was he actually went to the shop where I was on duty to buy it. This comes on top of our last wedding anniversary which just happened to be the same day as the Ripon contest. Stan managed to fall over and lose the use of his legs so we spent the night in casulty. he slept most of it as he was rather drunk after celebrating the results while I spent the night in the most uncomfortable chair imaginable waiting to find out what was actually wrong with him. Although we don't normally celebrate valentines day I've warned him he better come up with something amazing if he wants to continue living, although I wouldn't actually committ the murder until after the area (Bb basses are hard to come by)
