Does anyone have a definitive list of the bands taking part this year?
The announcement of last year's line-up was made in May, so it shouldn't be long.
Phew - thats a good job then as its only 7 weeks to the contest......................
6 weeks on Saturday....
a list has gone out to all the competing bands, so the announcement should be any day now!
If anyone from the competing bands wants to beat the organisers to it, we shan't object :biggrin:
This is the lineup for the Masters.
Aveley & Newham Band
Brass Band Buizingen
Concord Brass Band
Jaguar (Coventry) Band

I believe they are very good odds for Hepworth, be very surprised if they don't come top 2!!
It'll be easier here:
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
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.
Or here :biggrin:
Just realised that it will be a brand new name on the trophy this year. Also, only 5 bands with a previous top 6 finish. Changed days indeed for the Masters.
Separate names with a comma.
