    According to the announcement on the Kapitol website, the 2nd section is on the Sunday afternoon.

    I notice that the 4barsrest classifieds also list the regionals pieces as the set music.

    See you there Chunky.

    I'm so jealous, our band convincingly beat 4 of the 2nd section finalist bands at Butlins only a couple of months ago. :mad:
    Missed out yet again by one place - coming 3rd for the last 3 years. It should have been us - Sulk :(

    So sorry BigHorn! Would not swap our Butlins result for the result at area under any circumstance!

    Well, if it's any consolation, we took the area performance we were capable of on stage at Stevenage last Saturday, but we left the Butlins performance we were capable of in Staines bandroom on the Thursday night before.

    Good luck next year.

    Fantastic result for Welsh banding, and well done to all my friends at both Newbridge and Beaumaris!

    P.S. Remember Iwan, no unscheduled stops on the way home ;)

    Da iawn Cymru!

    At least Welsh banding is in a better state than Welsh rugby! ;)

    What's "*&^{~#|><\+>" in Welsh ?

    Seriously; heartiest congratulations to the Welsh Bands, a well deserved triumph.
    Did our Yorkshire beer agree with you ?
    (Even if snooty Harrogate bums up the prices)

    WAHEY!!!!! Well chuffed with 2nd with Beaumaris yesterday. Bit of a late one last night and have given up teaching today - its keyboard and headphone lessons via distance learning!

    Congratulations to Newbridge and Iwan (will never hear the end of it from him now!

    Plus at least Welsh Rugby has improved immediatley now that Gyppo Jenkins has had the boot! It was like having George W Bush as head coach the rubbish he was spouting!
