    And you're not a bit thick Rick, you wouldn't be able to do the job you do if you were! As for your spelling, shame we can't all be perfect isn't it and I think there's far more important things in the world to concern us to be honest!

    Lets hope the weather forecast is accurate, says its going to be a scorcher so should be a great day. I can confirm that the first band is scheduled to march off at 1.30pm. Thanks to all bands who have entered hope you are successful and enjoy the day

    It's forecast a scorcher today. This really is a great contest. Beautiful surroundings, well organised and beer nearby (for those that think beer is important of course ;)).

    From memory (so apologies if any of this is wrong...) Marsden won overall (I think they won best humn tune and best road march too, though that might be wrong), Elland Silver won deportment, one of the Elland Silver players won individual deportment, Elland Juniors won the Youth Band trophy and Boarshurst won best 4th section band.
