    Thank you. I couldn't access the website last week, from the SBBA site, but seems to be ok now.

    Heard all 13 bands today.....thanks to everyone. Very enjoyable and some great music choices, playing and entertainment.

    Special mention for Tullis. I thought they were so musical and produced some real lovely moments, especially in the softer bits where the real test is. I noticed they are graded 2nd section, but no surprise to me they took 1st and Championship sections scalps. Thanks all for a great day.

  12. smaca I am with you a very enjoyable day but for me some of the bands have forgotten what entertainment is, just having a player or a section standing up (and not even getting up in time.....) is not entertainment and for me many of the bands played a few pieces without thinking about it as a 20 min concert program which needs to be varied. I concur with your statements about Tullis Russell and they actually made me laugh during the Tuba solo with a well thought out and obviously rehearsed bit of play acting. And hats of to Downshire as well a well played and well balanced program. I didn't hear Irvine & Dreghorn.......... really sorry guys but the Coop and Whitburn where a good bit in front of the other podium places for me with the cornet feature from the Coop just awesome.

    A well organised day although was there an issue with percussion ? I though all the percussion was supplied on stage but it seemed to take a while to get the bands set up.

    Looking forward to the Fife Contest now which I believe is earlier this year and will be at the end of Sept ?
