    Just been listening to an interesting debate on Radio 2 about the inclusion of darts as an olympic sport. It begs the question, Is it about time Brass Banding was included as an olympic sport...? :lol:

    Don't think it would qualify, being more of a blood-sport.............

    And with all the talk about lead-in beats etc we'd probably never start together either :wink:

    Not sure the IOC would be impressed with giving out 25~28 gold medals for one event.

    To overcome this, the band would start on the firing of a gun. There could be amazing electronic wizardry that could tell how soon after the gun the band came in or, possibly, if anybody came in before the gun.

    If the adjudicator didn't like the performance he could shoot the conductor with the same gun at the end of the performance.

    Bass players would regularly be subject to dope tests.

    :idea: I can see that this will work...

    Maybe all the bands could start together when the gun is fired, with the one finishing first being declared the winner - or else measure the number of decibels reached for the longest period and choose the winner that way :shock: :wink: :lol:

    The thing is, whatever the judge/adjudicators decision was would be wrong.
