  2. Im amazed theres no reply on this 1 yet

    got a few friends in this section, from the college course and some players who have made the trip over the pennines from yorkshire to lancashire

    I'll try and get over there this year as it is still a very strong region (still playing 2nd fiddle to yorkshire i.m.o. ;) )

    best of luck to all those bands competing especially the bands ive either had a play with or who Ive got mates in

    see you there! :D

    I'll have to disagree with you on that, in my eyes the north west is far stronger than yorkshire in every section execpt the top section. Having only been down here a couple of years I've been amazed at how strong the sections are in the north west, i've heard a number of 3rd section bands over the last couple of years who wouldn't be out of place in the 1st/2nd section elsewhere in the country. Band for band I think the north west leads the way :tup

    Should be a good contest, i'm looking forward to it just hoping that a) it doesn't snow again, b) the beer is a little better than years past and c) i don't miss a pano top b flat :clap:

    From 1st section down, I'm pretty confident the NW has more strength in depth than any other region.

    My first Blackpool area was in 1988 and the beer hasn't improved since, so don't hold yer breath.
