    I'll be there, with bells on, supporting the wife, who's playing with Deepcar on their first ever contest. Spose I'll have to support Ireland as well though seeing as you're there too!

    Youth section - Sellers, Gawthorpe, Sissit
    Section B - Deepcar, ICCB, Emley, Linthwaite, Skelmanthorpe
    Section A - Co-op, Meltham, Slaithwaite

    all only rumour tho - I know nothing offical of course!

    Anyone else - why isn't there more bands going? what would tempt you to enter a yorkshire contest rather than travelling to compete!?

    Very short notice, I've only just found out! :eek:

    Good contest though, I remember doing it a couple of years ago and thought it had a nice atmosphere.

    I'm a bit gutted firstly our youth band was supposed to be there, then our senior band. Think there might have been a slight logistical problem there two bands, one contest, thirteen overlapping players. Now neither band is going! Because we are all lazy!
    At least I get to go and watch the Mighty Trin destroy the London Skolars!

    Good Luck Dodworth!:p

    Think there's only two bands now in section A as I understand one has withdrawn?

    I believe this years contest is Open Adjudication, but I appreciate its best to keep pieces to be played ' under wraps' .

    Batting ideas round with the big chief organiser last night -
    If we could arrange it, do people think that having the contest in Morley Town hall would up the prestige and entry of the contest?

    just my thought, wondered what folk thought?!

    Upping the ante of the venue should pull in more bands - and probably make it more of a winner with the public; downside as always is the trade off with the cost of putting on a regional event like this. Be good too if media coverage was better (or even existent) but unless this was held in the Metropolis of Leeds, Calendar News or Look North just wouldn't want to know. Grrrr....

    Yes, but we may piggy back through the Leeds Brass Band concert series?!
    One negative thought is the contest is well suppoorted (well, so so) by huddersfield bands, Morley is one more M62 junction from this years contest, would the traditional Pogson Bands, stay with the contest, I know Emley would ;-)!! And I think we'd enjoy going to a good hall, with the chance of an audience, and plenty of pubs around, and theres plenty of free parking too!

    Just a quick note to say good luck to The Emley this weekend, hope you all have a good time.

    I dread to think what the meerkat may be getting up to ;) Hope he brings you more luck this time! (and more 'interesting' photos!)
