Yesterday my band arrived at the conference centre just in time to be told we had drawn number 1 (yours truly could see the title going already :-( ), but not to worry we had been relazing at harrogate band room and felt we had plenty time to get sorted before we went on stage.... NOT SO!!!!!!!! As we got into the band holding area we were told to hurry up and get changed as they wanted us on stage in 5 minutes! So we got changed but lucky we got a bit of time to warm up, well about 3 minutes :-? Then we were rushed up to the registration area just to be told there was an error with our cards, not a problem you would think just go on and play andd sort it out later, but the women sat at the desk was addiment that she was going to put a spanner in the work and cause more hssle and stress for us (apparently a lot of bands had the same problem with there cards). I've got no qualms about the result at the end of the contest or anything like that and I know contests try there best to stay on time, but would it have made any difference at all if we were allowed and extra 10 mins to have a PROPER walm up and go through registration without being rushed. To me this would only have been fair as every other band was going to have a little longer and not be RUSHED! I know my view willl be biased but what do people think?
