    No its not, something very odd though. Maybe they have all gone to play golf ? Those that attended will understand that comment

    Does that mean Fairfield Buxton won? As they seem to be going to the finals and Stourport seem to be 3rd.

    To be honest I forget the other prize winners ! I have drunk 2 pints of beer today so memory is not at its best

    Im just curious about what everyone els thought about the adudicators speeches at the results ? And also anyone that thought stourport were hard done by ? Most people I spoke to gad them down as winners.
     
  21. I wonder how many bands were criticised for "timps - too heavy"? I did hear one band saying they would have been better off not having a timp player, because they were criticised and yet other bands don't seem to be penalised if they didn't have a timp player. Seems a bit unfair that you can lose points for being a little heavy and yet not lose points for not having a part being played. :-? I think 4th section bands do well to get 3 percussionist and when you hear of bands considering leaving out a part to improve their chances - then something is surely wrong !!
