.....no not the accomodation This is not meant to have a big old crack at the NW committee but there were a few things I was dissappointed in. I hope we can constructively use this thread to try and encourage the committee to make improvements for next year. The first thing is the warm-up facilities that were used for the 2nd Section. The room was tiny to start off with and no stands were provided. If we were meant to bring our own, we certainly didn't know about it. It meant the bands didn't have a chance to get playing together with a quick warm up on hymns etc (which is certainly well needed) Secondly the gong used in the section didn't have proper stand!! Whilst we were setting up the stage for our performance the 'stand' was being taped up.... :shock::shock::shock: Whilst the 2nd is very likely to be a one-off as Ray generally does a fantastic job of organising the percussion please can we have some stands for the warm-up rooms?? or at least notification to bring a set for ourselves.
