    Thank God it's over 2 weeks to the contest, especially as I and the rest of our band (wel cornet section anyway) am not going to be able to make it to band this week, loving James Cook and I think the First Section contest should be one of the best of the weekend......not that the rest won't be competitive. Best of luck to all competing bands and hope to meet some new and not so new faces in the bar afterwards - I am still failrly new to West of England banding so need to meet more players down there. Right, off now to practise that cornet cadenzary bit of Jimmy Cook - but as someone said I have over 2 weeks to perfect it yet!!

    I'm pretty sure their conductor left. It's a shame, because you're right, they had done well.

    An enigmatic reply!

    Does this mean you will be conducting and wearing a big furry hat and a dark scowl?:cool:

    C'mon the Lanner!

    Met a few of the guys from the band at Wychavon contest a few years back. Mother in law is from there. In fact, when we did a band tour to Hayle last year i drove through Lanner and past the famous Lanner Inn on the way!

    Glad to see them back :clap:

    I love the west of england area always a great atmosphere, such a good spirit in the lower sections and also the top sections although underneith it all the rivalry is rife!

    I was there on Monday! So was Fi...and little Paul, and big Paul...AND Tom! That's over half of the cornet section, and we did very well! :tongue:

    I'll echo what others have said - it's good to see Lanner back! :)

    Not long to go now! :biggrin:

    I think 4 cities warrants a different hat for each movement.

    Funny you say that - our MD did that with "Rudolph around the World" one Christmas. Hope you get the changes right!!

    Anyone have any thoughts on winning bands?? here are my top two in each section-

    Champ- Polysteele, Camborne
    1st- Helston, St Dennis
    2nd- Camborne B, Pheonix Brass
    3rd- AW Parker, Hayle
    4th Bream, Swindon

    I think the first section is going to be a cracking contest with several bands with the ability to win. Also great to see Lanner back.
