    Well said. We played our best yesterday under very difficult circumstances. We didn't get a place. We din't win any of the individual prizes but we're not complaining. Someone had to win that percussion prize. Although we would have liked it, well done to the 2 young gentlemen that did win it.

    Incidentally I would like to thank the committee and all of the other bands in the 1st section who were so understanding to us yesterday. For those who aren't aware We had just completed the section meeting and were walking out of the control room when I got a text through to say our only Bb bass player Stan had been taken ill in practice and could we borrow a player as an emergency. Although the meeting had finished and it was officially too late for such a request, they immediately pulled all reps back into the control room, put the request to them and it was unanimous that we could borrow.

    Luckily Stan did pull round and although not 100% managed to make it onto the stand and play so the player we had arranged to borrow from Barton wasn't needed, but we are extremely grateful to all who rallied round to help us compete.

    Tally bally hoooo
    Ginge and I were at the Dolphin yesterday and I think you must have been hit by a Jerry bullet blue juice
    The results werent a joke and Barton directed by that 'Young' Dick Evans deserved their win plus the prizes, regardless of how many notes they played they won the percussion prize, also well done to that handsome lot from Ashington directed by that devilshly dashing Steve Malcolm, busy man of late,
    Ginge and I detect some 'sour' grapes it because you lot were unplaced..get a grip thats contesting....
