Oh well, 7th in the trophy isn't so bad I suppose. I think the band played very well, particularly Rhys on Flugel, and JP on Sop, (well done boys) so a top-half finish is just reward. I didn't hear any other bands in the trophy so I've no idea what the standard overall was. I do think it's amusing 4br had us as high as 2nd though - Worth taking as a reminder not to put too much faith in their ratings on the day. Particularly on a piece like Benvenuto where so much is down to interpretation. You never know what the adjudicators are looking for. First time I've been adjudicated by Linda Nicholson - though that said, I've never once had a duff result out of Stan and he's always talked a lot of sense afterwards when questioned - so if he says we were 7th, then we were 7th. Thanks Wakey - it's been fun. Good luck.
