    Hope you enjoyed it Rach - I had fun playing Northern Landscapes :wink:

    Didn't get to see any other bands myself, had to nip off home to take the misses to ASDA :cry: So, all you Mouthpiecers out there missed out on the communal Diet Coke. Sorry 8)

    Well done to Silk Brass then Heather - shame I couldn't stay to listen.

    well done to all the bands that took part. There were some good performances in all sections. Let's hope that everyone represents the Midlands well at the areas.

    Well done Shaz....(and yes I did actually come out of the bar to have a listen to some of the bands!).

    Congratualtions to you Dave as well...all 3 performances in the 3rd section were very impressive I thought. Should be a good competition in a few weeks!

    Yeah, I thought it was going to be close - nice to win for sure. Still plenty of work to go before the area, especially in the third movement, but it's given us a good confidence boost.

    And well done Shaz - third is pretty good going behind those other two. Didn't get to hear you sadly.

    :evil: Those outher two!!! the points show that the gap betwen Bakewell & Matlock was only one point but two to Long Eaton. We to have a lot of work to do and will have a stronger band out at the area as our solo and 2nd Trom were on holiday and had no Bass Trom.
    For all that might think Matlock are on the way out lookout we are back
    and determind to get back up the sections
    Good luck to all at the Area and see the runners up in Dundee
    :wink: :tup

    Really enjoyed my day at the contest., made even better as we won!!!
    To me its a good old fashioned contest with no airs and graces and well done to the people who organised it. At contests likethis I don't think people mind too much if things go wrong as they realise the organisers are doing their best to make it successful (not that anything did go wrong!)
    At first I thought the hall was too small but it had a great accoustic and I found it was easy to play in.
    I was also great playing to a full hall rather than 2 men, a dog and the cleaner!!
    We were really pleased with our win, even though there were only 2 of us in it, and hope we can do the same in Blackpool.
    Good Luck to Riddings band too...it was nice to have some happy banter in the changing room!

    :D well done to matlock!! i left a message on your website, nice to see matlock doing well again. I'm sure its all down to their lager than life inspirational MD :wink: as for percussion........... excellent as always. we too had problems with only 1 euph and a last minute reshuffle on the bone section and a perc section who didnt meet until 2 days before the contest!
    As for crewe co=op I listened to both bands and I thought they were awesome !, they must be in the prizes at their area :tup

    what's a bass trom? One of those fictional instruments like a soprano cornet or a BBb bass?
