    The announcement of last year's line-up was made in May, so it shouldn't be long.

    Wantage at 200/1?? Check your results list and you will see that Wantage have beaten both Aveley and Friary (100/1) this year and have been 3rd in both the last 2 areas. Don't you like us??!!

    Another satisfied customer :rolleyes:

    Seriously thou whilst you have achieved two decent results at your Area this is a major and it's about more that just the L&SC runners, there are some class acts here.

    I can't ignore the more mediocre results between those two 3rds, 12th at the Senior Trophy last year for one...

    Go on, prove me wrong and if you have a few virtual squids at 200/1 you'll be smiling.

    Why not join Paddy's Fantasy Brass Band League where you can virtual flutter til your heart's content, you could play a major role in knocking down that price ahead of the big day.

    Best of luck to all at Wantage (and no, it's not that I dont like you) :biggrin:

    Don't complain, Paddy's offering value there....

    Would you have realistically achieved that result at a stronger area either Yorkshire, North West or Wales? 200/1 is good odds, take them while you can!!

    You can only play the opposition that you have! So that is a non argument I'm afraid.
    But I guess the proof of the pudding.......!

    We at Redbridge are hard at work on Titan for the Shield - any thoughts on Gemini yet?

    You know, Steve, I did ask Phil Bailey in all seriousness if he was our Paddy. Ironic, no?

    Best of luck in Kettering and Blackpool.

    Boring repetitive bits, rock hard solos but with a few enjoyable moments! Hope rehearsals for the Shield are going well Jeremy.
