    Diane, hope everything went as smoothly for you and rest of the organizers today. Did you get much time to listen to many of the bands and what were your impressions?

    As usual I was stuck in the kitchen most of the day.

    The only band I heard were Kirkintillloch who I thought were very good - especially their performance of Penny Lane.

    Go Johnstone. Not tipped.............but that`s when you`re best. Having heard your programme know it`s well deserved.

    Great to see the NE bands doing well over the border - special well done to Easington for 4th place, a great result for them and from a drunken phone call at around midnight last night I gather that the celebrations were almost as good as their performance. Was a real shame Fishburn couldn't make it this year, it's always been one of my favourite contests, great atmosphere and excellently organised. Roll on next year :)

    Cheers Steve.
    Much celebrating was had and the obligatory kebab was savoured. We all had a great time yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed our Troon debut, roll on next year. Everyone was really friendly and inviting and the audience was appreciative of our performance. A great day.

    Also extra congratulations to our solo horn player Jonathan who won the best horn prize, a well deserved.

    So what was the day like? Was the general standard of playing good? Were there a varied selection of Beatle's numbers played? Or is everyone still recovering from the seaside air?
