    I have lots of http://brassbandresults.co.uk users looking for results for the 2012 Hardraw Scar contest - anyone know what they are?

    Class A:

    Class B:

    This contest is a bit of a mess on BBR - we could do with help to seperate out Class A/B for previous years.

    We've been trying to get ahold of the contest organisers since Monday morning. We've left messages & emails etc, but so far no response.

    We've been told Hade Edge won, Otley Band 4th overall & Ratby Mid 2nd in their section. However none of this is from the contest officials & so we're unable to publish it as gospel! No idea of any other results.

    I was helping at Hardraw on Sunday and I know Colin Wormald, Contest Controller, has taken a few days holiday after the contest (he deserves it - Colin is well into his 70's) I am sure he will send out an 'official' press release on his return home but in the meantime I made a note of the prize winners. Please do not take this as 'official', Colin will confirm as soon as he is able and the results will also be posted on the YHBBA website.

    Sorry, I forgot to include the adjudicators, as follows:

    Musical standard: Colin Hardy
    Entertainment: Ben Cauldwell and Miss Jo Brown

    Huge thanks to all the bands and their supporters. It was a grand day out last Sunday - weather perfect and an appreciate audience of well over 1,500.
    It had a great feel good factor and showed Yorkshire and brass bands at their best.

    Shame it clashed with the Bridgewater Hall event.
