  2. 23 bands in just the fourth section! Is this the largest entry out of all the regions? Les Ager (ex-haverhill) will be taking Newmarket (LSC 4th section) by the way. Good to see so many entries ;-) Gonna be a long weekend!

    Any further news on the top section? Lots of rumours about the demise of Staines....

    .... another conspiracy theory?

    I've heard that one of the guards bands is away that weekend, leaving Staines very short. Also, I believe some of their members have now joined Redbridge..... something to do with politics.

    I'm also told Redbridge are having problems too..... not being able to get a full band, and loads of player changes.

    I would suggest a clear Aveley win, followed by the two "professional" bands (Alliance and Zone1).

    I'll be very interested to see how Zone 1 do under Paul Archibald, having heard them under his baton in concert last year. They've always had the potential to do well, providing they can put the rehearsal time in.

    I wouldn't rush to write off Redbridge's chances, despite their disappointing showing at Skegness.

    Trust me - having been beat by them 3 years running i never write off that band!!!

    Not that I'm aware of.

    Only 2 or 3 have joined Redbridge from Staines since the Nationals.

    Cheers Gav
    The band is working hard at the moment and looking forward to our first outing in the first section. It's a bit of an ask for a hat trick of area wins but who knows! We have just landed ourselves a bit of sponsorship so we can contest without using a credit card for the first time!
    Good luck with Deiniolen.

    'Tis true - Staines are not going to the Areas.
     
  18. Texus

    Texus Member

    Is that confirmed?
     
  19. MRSH

    MRSH Supporting Member

    It's as confirmed as it can be from some Staines players who have re-registered with another band to do the Areas because Staines aren't.
     
  20. Texus

    Texus Member

    Shame. We need to start showing some consistency down here. Both Staines and First City have shown the potential to hold their own for the Area in National Contests, only to disappear.
