    Does seem a bit light on the posting front - what no band being followed by TV cameras, no kick-off about the venue, no pending controversy regarding dynamic?

    Oh well we live in hope :)

    3rd Section Contest

    I am bursting with eager anticipation for our first contest under the baton of our excellent new conductor Gordon Eddison. The band is playing well and there is a real sense of optimism for the future. Roll on Sunday and hopefully what will be an enjoyable and successful competition.

    Anyone able to enlighten us all on this one? - It's very unusual to borrow in the regionals (except from the previous band) and probably unique to borrow from a higher section (except the enlightened use of a limited number of section 3 players in section 4 contests) .

    Taken from National rules.

    16. a) In the event of a player being unable to compete due to personal or family illness, injury,
    bereavement or other emergency occurrence prior to the draw, the delegate may apply to
    the Contest Management for a deputy player, submitting documentary evidence in support
    of the application, either at the draw or within SEVEN (7) DAYS of the date of the
    Providing the Contest Management is satisfied the application is genuine, the band
    drawn immediately before the band making the application must supply the relevant
    deputy with the band part and instrument, if applicable. In the event of the lending band
    not having such a player or instrument, the Contest Management may use discretion as to
    the next band required to supply the deputy player. If the band making the application is
    drawn first, the band drawn last must supply the deputy player. In the event of a split
    draw, this will mean the band drawn to play last in that group.
    It is the responsibility of the lending band’s delegate to ensure that the deputy player
    fulfils this commitment. The player acting as deputy must not accept payment for his

    According to the rules, the dep should have been provided by Ellington, Unless they didn't have a sop?

    1st section results a joke. How a band can get best percussion when the percussion have nothing to do except about 4 notes in the last movement and they missed the last note is beyond me. Next year have a piece that doesn't rely on the adjudicators interpretation to differentiate between first and last.

    A band can get best percussion because there is a best percussion prize? Therefore, someone has to win it. Maybe they played the 4 notes in the last movement better than anyone else?

    How are the results a joke?

    Yes Lets do away with the "CONTEST".All bands bring a piece of string.The band with the longest piece wins. Power to the impartial tape measure, and when we don,t win then we can all go home and complain about, metric or imperial units , who,s job it was to hold the tape, they seemed to be pulling the string,it rained and my string shrank, another band cut my string.
