    Is anybody going to this event ? YHBBA usually do a decent job and it's FREE for all supporters. Went to have a look the other week - lovely venue - just want the weather. You could even take your rods and fish in the ponds whilst listening to the music or walk up to the look out point if your feeling energetic.

    Give 'em some support - food stalls, mobile bar, brass bands - what more do you want ?

    Bring your sun hat and your brollie - remember the scout motto.

    See you there ?

    Dronfield played Castell Coch, Every Time We Say Goodbye (well, most of it!), Lightwalk and Hyfrydol from the Black Dyke Hymn Book. And we had a very good day :) Thanks to the organisers - I wasn't at all sure when I got to the venue but the weather was kind and it went well...hope to see everyone next year!

    Commiserations to Kirkby, I think you deservered a much higher position than you got. I enjoyed your programme and your playing, in my opinion, was of a very high standard

    Kirkby were 5th, and our Training band were 10th, so Whiston, Dinnington and Thoresby Youth occupy places 7-9!
