    The second Yorkshire Band is Innovate Skelmanthorpe B Band just to avoid confusion. The A band just missed out on the First Section finals when coming third at Bradford.

    Massive congratulations to Skelmanthorpe B Band and Phil Garlick on coming third. I'm really annoyed that I couldn't be there to hear you. Well done Paula - first one under the belt.

    Many congratulations to Skelmanthorpe B Band, it was a great performance and well deserved!

    Well done to Barney for helping out Crofton on his contest debut - playing a test piece twice on the day is quite a feat!

    Well done to all at Formby, from a former Ainsdale resident.
  16. Well done to all the bands in the championship, as was said on the day, all bands should be congratulated as we were all champions to be at Harrogate at all.

    Our 9th place was just about what we deserved so again congrats to all especially Formby, I didn't hear you, but from all accounts you deserved it

    Great Yarmouth's coach was depressing on the way home but the ironic thing is we came last the previous time we got entered into the finals and that was in Dundee! We have been promoted to 3rd section no matter what our result was last weekend!

    Can anyone tell me who made the recordings at Harrogate?I have forgotten.
  20. Just to offer my congratulations to all of the prize winners - well done!

    What a great weekend it was, and one that I will never forget. Hopefully our band will get another shot at the finals one day.
