    Join us here LIVE on Wednesday evening for the first giving of 'The Paddys'. (Tuesday night became impossible for me, sorry about that).

    Glitz, Glamour, Red Carpets, Celebrities, Paparazzi, Wardrobe Malfunctions... None of these will be on display but hey it's gonna be a great night and if you're up for an award why not join us LIVE to see if you get it (maybe put in an acceptance speech or sour grapes rant...)

    See you then

    Paddy

    Welcome one and all to the first 'Pa-cademy Awards' ceremony.

    Tonight we celebrate those great moments, people and bands that have over the last 12 months raised our eyebrows and done something quite extraordinary. You're all looking fantastic in your black-tie get-up and it's great to see Dicky Evans sat in the front row with a big grin on his face as his eyes are masked with an enormous but nonetheless stylish pair of sunglasses.

    So without further ado let's get on to our first award of the evening...

    Who saw that one coming?

    Every now and then a band steps up to the mark BIG style at a contest and produces a performance that stuns the crowd (and the bookies in particular). This year we've had a number of those but only one can take home The Paddy.

    The nominations in this catagory are...
     
  7. Paddy Flower

    Carlton Main Frickley Colliery
    (under the direction of Phillip McCann) for producing a fine early marker (off no. 5) of The Red Priest at The Open

    Tongwynlais Temperance (Philip Harper)

    Smooth as a baby's backside

    Every year we go contesting. We work our little nads off for weeks, the band finds the funds for a sharabang and off we go playing as if our lives depended on it. We get the results, we celebrate (rarely) and grumble (often). But behind the Beer and Banding there is a troup of ladies and gentlemen much maligned by the banding community. They turn up before the sun's had it's breakfast and they'll be the last the leave and without them, your days contesting would not be possible, those behind the scenes people that make it run oh so smoothly


    The nominations in this catagory are...
     
  16. Paddy Flower

    Peter Bates - North-West Regional Secretary

    Weston Contest

    SWBBA (for their efforts at Torquay)

    Brain Eggleshaw (and the Butlins Team)

    SBBA - for the Scottish Open

    Ray Payne (Percussion) - for providing the bings and the bongs

    L&SC area team

  18. Paddy Flower

    Brian Eggleshaw :D - and his hard working team at Skegness


    I have to say that this was a far closer run thing that the last one with so many valued contributions being recognised, votes were spread pretty evenly across the board

    Stay tuned as we find out who was REALLY robbed in 2011...

    We wuv robbed!!!

    We've all been there haven't we. The preparation, the delivery of your best efforts and yet for some reason the powers that be just said, "nah, we'll give it to someone else"


    The disgruntled nominees in this catagory are...

    Imps
    for not taking the 2011 Butlins 1st section crown (I'm assuming they have another nomination to look forward to next year as well then)


    Fodens
    They deliver a scintilating Paggers at Blackpool and yet 4br ignore them in their list of great 2011 performances


    Eccles Borough
    Back to Butlins where the red-hot 3rd Section favourites only managed 10th


    Powerfuel Hatfield Colliery
    Everything seemed to be going so well, until they bagged 20th and last at the Senior Cup


    Woodfalls
    finishing 3rd at the Wessex Assoc contest trailing in the wake of Lydbrook and Horsham, this is a contest they have owned since their last defeat there to Bournemouth in 1992 (in fact I think they've won this one in excess of 40 times now).
