    Of course they can think about it Philip; but if they do it, there will be questions asked, points taken away, Nationals to be lost, all that jazz.

    I'm sure everyone has spotted these, but a few other wee blips have been found;

    3rd movement; Bar 42 - 2nd cnt. 5th note C not A
    Bar 76 - BBflat bass 4th note D flat

    Big thanks to the composer of the 4th section test-piece for those!

    As much as I agree with that, wasn't that the general consensus about last years 3rd Section Nationals and tjey came 6th was it?

    still for what it's worth I think

    Yes Dwarf you are correct in that we were one of the fav for last year in the 3rd section however the band realise that it was not our best performance and agree with the 5th place we were awarded not 6th. This year wee look to build on our recent successes with 14 wins out of 17 contests witch includes one win in the championship section at western.

    Above all else the nationals in my opinion has become somewhat of a lottery due to the number of bands competing and having been given a test piece that each one will be able to play comfortably, however Newbridge band recognise that its the pieces that all band will be able to play that require the most amount of work to make them truly effective and are well under way with our preparation.

    Thanks to all tmp'ers that have given us words of support and encouragement.

    Good luck to all bands.

    Mmm.... so Newbridge to win then?? Can't help thinking from that comment that if you win it's down to preparation and if you don't it's a lottery!!! ;)

    Good luck though - this is only only friendly banter!!!

    I personally think we have a good chance having improved as a band since coming 2nd from the 1st spot in Dundee 03, however if you are a championship standard band as people seem to be saying you probably deserve to win.... hope you don't though!:tup

    Hey there its all friendly banter I think my comments made earlier may have come over a bit strong but that is certainly not the case. In the end whatever the result what ever the performance we will all be having a pint after and talking about trying for qualification next year.

    The open rehearsal we had last night was great and the piece was received well so we have had a run out. Like you we approach this year with a better and wiser band and are looking to improve on our last years result.

    Who knows on the day what will happen as nobody really knows the competition well enough so I wish you all the best on stage (fingers crossed behind my back).

    Have a great weekend and if you’re around come say hi in the bar.
