    The things I do for this Web Site. . .

    Just dashed back from Burton to inform you that Kibworth, Riddings and Gresley Old Hall are the first Midlands Band to be going up to Dundee.

    Brief Summary: It was a good all round contest with Kibworth leading from the early number 3 spot. Not all bands managed to find all the musical detail - those who did were rewarded - and a lot of bands suffered bad intonation and tuning - surprising at this level!
    Majority of Sop players had a 'nightmare' with only one or two giving convincing performances.

    A good start to the weekend though

    Best Mouthpiece.com performance:
    Nottingham City Transport : Shatzmo Shaz on Principal - well done Sharon.

    1 Kibworth - J. Berryman (3) 190 points - Qualified

    This means that I have got my first prediction for the 'Midlands Competion' right! - Now just need Wem & Jackfield to win tomorrow!

    Well done to all who competed today - I think its fair to say that the Midlands first section is a very impressive line up of bands.

    Well Done Carlton, and well done to the site hero Roger with his 4th place Can't congratulate anybody at Daventry, except an ex Bestwood player Ken Ewer.. maybe the internet doesn't reach into the depths of Northants

    Congrats to Daventry and the rest of the qualifiers for Dundee, enjoy the trip!!!! :p

    I have to admit, with no disrespect to Daventry because they did play well, it was a bit of a shock result!

    Still, there's alway next year :?
