    It will certainly be a long trip for tubbytuba & co from Camborne - it's also a fair hike from up here in God's own country, although spare a thought for Campbeltown who have over 100 miles to travel before they hit any dual carriageway/motorway. Where's everyone basing themselves? We are scheduled to arrive in Huddersfield (George Hotel) at around 7 on Friday evening, leaving there by 7 on the Saturday morning to be in Harrogate in time for the draw. Back to the hotel at night before returning home on Sunday. Ready for rehearsals tomorrow/Wed/Thu, then Fri in the hotel; probably typical of most bands at this stage there are times when the piece sounds great....and others when it sounded better when first sight-read!
    Looking forward to Saturday though when hopefully all the hard work will be worth it.

    Less than an hour before I leave the house to head out to meet the coach, Harrogate here we come!
    Just a final word to wish all tMP'ers (and their bands of course) all the best for this weekend - winners and losers there must be, but whatever our own outcomes, let's enjoy the experience.
    Let battlus commencus as old Julius probably never said.....

    Good luck to all the bands taking part this year in the third section i was doing the same thing this time last year, enjoy the experience the buzz that you get is amazing so much that you go on to auto pilot when playing (thank god for all those rehershals!).
    Also a special good luck to Dodworth and Clifton and Lightcliffe who are doing it for Yorkshire.
