    I don't know where YRBBC gets the weather forecast from for Sunday.

    The BBC weather says: Chance of Rain. Partly Cloudy. High: 18° C. Wind SSW 21 km/h. 30% chance of precipitation. :confused:

    From speaking to my man at the Forestry Commission.

    What a pity we have nothing better to comment on but the weather :(

    I will stay optimistic and not let the pessimist get me down, :)

    Still, people had better take a pacamac & brolly rather than rely on an amateur forecaster

    So that would be a 70% chance of it not raining

    Weather forecast looks pretty good to me :)

    This was a very well-organised and enjoyable event last year so am really looking forward to it this year.

    Good luck to all the competing bands.

    Full results - I hope you can all make sense of it:

    Band (Played) (March-Hymn-Selection) Music Total - Entertainments Total - Total Points
    1. Crofton Silver (8 ) (48-48-92) 188 - 41 - 229
    2. Thurlstone (6) (44-46-87) 177 - 44 - 221
    3. Hucknall & Linby (7) (41-44-89) 174 - 42 - 216
    4. Oughtibridge (2) (46-41-81) 168 - 34 - 202
    5. Ireland Colliery (1) (40-42-85) 167 - 35 - 202

    10. Thurcroft Training Band (4) (37-37-79) 153 - 26 - 179

    N.B. Any bands tied on points – the music score will take precedent to decide the winner/placings.

    *Dronfield incurred a 1 point time penalty [which was perhaps a bit unfair given the car alarm going off in the middle of their performance, but it doesn't change the result]

    Most Entertaining Band - Thurlstone
    Most Entertaining Item - Deepcar - Lord of the Dance
    Best 4th Section/Unregistered not in first three places - Oughtibridge
    Best March - Crofton Silver
    Best Hymn - Crofton Silver
    Best Soloist - Bass Trombone, Crofton Silver


    Fantastically well run and enjoyable contest, and a pretty fair result - I particularly enjoyed Thurlstone and Hucknall & Linby - unfortunately missed Crofton as I was in the tent doing some last minute sight reading. Unfortunate result for Dronfield, who I felt deserved a bit better.

    Look forward to taking part in future years, I hope it will become a regular feature.

    Tim thanks for that comment - Dronfield have had some seriously diverse results at contests all year, we thought we played well and were happy with the performance. The results are the results.

    1 point time penalty wouldnt have made much difference to our placing so no concern there.

    First time Ive been and apart from the wind which must have effected what was heard in the adjudicators tent, it certainly did sat in front of them and nearer the bands, it was a fantastic day out. Lesson learnt for future perhaps would be to have more upbeat and louder music. Suspect a lot of the quieter detail in our programme was lost.

    We even had our "cuckoo" interferred with - it had a dead spider inside which made it sound very wierd (perhaps it was a cuckoo spider lol)

    I did hear Crofton and is was a well deserved winning performance across the board - congratulations to all the winning bands. Wasnt it great as the announcer mentioned to see so many yooung players turning out and having a go. I could say they will all be a force to reckon with in the future, but on our placing it looks like they are already there :)

    We played

    This Is My Story - cornet solo
    March - Cornish Cavalier
    Hymn - Breathe On Me Breath Of God
    In The Woods (inc poorly cuckoo)
    Procession To Minster

    Fran all I can say is none of the quiet detail was lost where I was sitting it was a good performance

    But must agree it was still agood contest and Peggy and the team did a great job just think the bar could of been down on the contest level they may of got more business dont know just a thought. As there was enough room down there for bar and food. We will be there next year
