    On the strength of that, uppermill were a bit hard-done-by. Alright the adjudicator has clearly heard them play the 2nd section area piece and put them behind the bands that played the top-section piece on difficulty alone - but based on what happened on stage I'm not sure that's the right thing to do.

    I suppose it's the old debate of whether it's better to play a hard piece poorly or an easier (becasue 'easy' simply cannot be used to describe cross patonce) piece creditably well?

    At the end of the day, it's an own choice contest, so you'd expect a band to play something they can cope with - even if it is the area piece.
