    Should be a cracking contest there are some very good bands in the championship section and the bands predicted to do well should be there or thereabouts. dont underestimate any of the bandsthere. Contests are all about opinions.

    Come on Guys - Woodfalls must be in a shout for it, in what seems to be a disappointing line up for a prestigious championship. Also watch out for ex-top band and sleeping giant St Austell. Always a threat on on the march again.

    ^I'll second that one Daz - and i'm not biased much either ha ha!!!

    Seriously though, I think that it will be a very close contest with any one of 6 or 7 bands in with a real shout. Hepworth and Ransomes will be there or there abouts i'm sure. I also hope that Kibworth do well, but not as well as BT obviously!!

    Hi All - just a quick note to say that our resident expert coder - the super dooper Keppler - will be coding up a tMP Pontins Prediction page within a few days which will work in much the same manner as the tMP Finals Contest did. We hope to have this up and running for you all very soon and you will then be able to predict online.

    Keep an eye out...:)

    To save any confusion, I have heard from a reliable source that STHCT Westoe have WITHDRAWN from Pontins. (The source being my sister who plays 2nd bari for them).

    For what its worth I'm surprised Horden haven't been mentioned yet... Although I think Hepworth will take the title and Ransome should be in the mix as well.

    I reckon that having looked at the bands, Ransome and Hepworth would appear to be favorites for the contest. Don't rule out bands like Ashton, Staffordshire, Pennine or Dobcross though. All seem to like the contest and have had really good results over the last couple of years.

    Well i havew to say i hope the current champoins INNOVATE SKELMANTHORPE(Kevin Wadsworth) will keep their title. They are a craking band and now with their new sexy front row cornet player, there unstoppable!!!
