    Just had a calculation for the nearest tMP predictions (since I am stuck in sick and not out celebrating with all the rest of you! :cry: )

    This is how the results were calculated- a max of 6 points for each place making a total of 36 availiable points.

    i.e YBS came 1st so you would have got the following points for YBS
    6th place= 1 point
    5th place= 2 points
    4th Place = 3 points
    3rd Place = 4 points
    2nd Place = 5 points
    1st Place = 6 points

    and Dyke came 3rd so you would have got the following points for dyke
    6th Place = 3 points
    5th Place = 4 points
    4th Place = 5 points
    3rd Place = 6 points
    2nd Place = 5 points
    1st Place = 4 points

    The results are:

    Leisa 26
    4BarsRest 24
    Toby 24
    Twigglet 22
    hoppiebari 21
    Dyl 20

    Had a great day and a nightmare journey home, but hey...

    YBS were terrific - I had Brighouse, Cory and Dyke next, in that order.

    Planets turned out to be quite a test for some bands but I'm looking forward to hearing some 'proper band music' again.

    Good to meet up with so many from tMP. Hope Roger's car was not clamped!

    I had YBS and Cory as my top two, for me YBS had something magic which other bands got nowhere near! Just like 'Les Preludes' they didn't stick to an Orchestral interp but what they did really worked for brass band. Faireys Jupiter was amazing, such a shame Venus didn't come off!! I thought Whitburn were v good, but what did them good was their consistancy, no real slip ups and a v nice band sound.

    Great performers on the day for me were, Dyke & Cory Euph, Cory & Ever Ready Flugel, Sop Cory, Dyke(so controlled) and Cornet CWS.

    Mark Bousie Member

    yes deave, you're putting me to shame!

    Seriously though, a good day, but for me the piece didn't quite come off. Hope the organisers bring back the policy on commissioning new works next year, for me the contest seemed to lack the buzz of previous opens, maybe because the music was so familiar. Venus did sort the bands out, infact almost too much as almost every band had accidents and this became a bit of a leveller! Didn't hear Whitburn, but congratulations to them.
    Can't disagree with the result too much, although I'm sure Cory will feel more than a little unlucky with their placing. YBS gave a very classy performance though.

    Touche deave-the BOC title is mine again!

    Well done to YBS. They had all the right soloists in all the right places for this one! They seem to keep winning it every other year too! :D

    As regards our result, 14th was pefectly fair. Venus went very awry on stage and we never recovered, no matter how good Jupiter was going to be :( The mobile phone was a tad annoying, but I'm sure we weren't the only band who had this happen? How hard is it for people to switch the bloody things off! :evil:

    To be fare I heard 14 bands and only heard one mobile phone ring. I know this is one too many, and I agree it is damn annoying that this happens. But I think the audience yesterday did make a big effort.

    What did annoy me though was the amount of people who had coughing fits at the beginning of the performances and the constant noise of sweets packets being opened. :evil:

    Ban Mobile Phones, Sweets, and issue cough drops with every programme!
