    [IMGLEFT][/IMGLEFT] tMP National Finals Prediction Competition - sections 1 through 4

    It's prediction time once again, as the Finals are getting close, and the tMP Prediction Gizmatron has been fed with all the details of the competing bands. All we would like you to do is choose your top 3 in each section. Simple.

    For those of you who have not been lucky enough to be inflicted with this before, clicking on the link at the very top of the page (see screenshot) will bring you to the Predictions Contest page, where you choose your bands. It's as simple as that.

    Scoring wise, each correct placing you make will earn you 15 (yes, 15) points. If you select a band that finishes in the top 3, but you have it in the wrong place, you will receive 5 points.

    The lucky tMP with the most points will be delared the winner, and be the object of awe from all other tMPers.

    Have fun.

    Don't forget too that you can also see the current fav tMP runners i.e. who you have voted for placings in each area. Enjoy!

    Just entered my predictions, I am expecting to come last as I dont have a clue about other sections, so I have chosen bands I have heard of.

    Hopefully Ashton will do well, as I used to play for them I wish them all the best

    And I competed against Imps the last time I heard them, and I didnt think they deserved relegation.

    Oki, not so long to go now, and we are getting a good response from tmpers.

    Just to give you an update on how things are progressing, here's a report distilled from our tMP predict-o-matic.

    In the First Section:
    Top runners are Yorkshire Imperial Urquhart Travel (119 votes) [1st:62/2nd:39/3rd:18]
    Ashton-Under-Lyne(64 votes)[1st:21/2nd:24/3rd:19]
    Freckleton(54 votes)[1st:16/2nd:15/3rd:23]

    In the Second Section:
    Top runners are Wire Brass (75 votes) [1st:45/2nd:15/3rd:15]
    Deiniolen (51 votes)[1st:16/2nd:17/3rd:18]
    Diggle(43 votes)[1st:7/2nd:21/3rd:15]

    In the Third Section:
    Top runners are United Norwest 2000 Brass (71 votes) [1st:32/2nd:20/3rd:19]
    Trinity Girls (60 votes)[1st:12/2nd:31/3rd:17]
    Grange Moor(50 votes)[1st:20/2nd:16/3rd:14]

    In the Fourth Section:
    Top runners are Five Rivers Brass (65 votes) [1st:23/2nd:20/3rd:22]

    Valley Brass [Haydock](36 votes)[1st:13/2nd:11/3rd:12]

    So there you have it. Up to the minute reports from your team at tMP. We can see that either you lot think it'll be close, or ye haven't a clue.. or indeed the stats don't mean much! Any which way, it's all exciting.

    More rumblings and gurglings from the Gizmatron distillator next week.

    I was thinking exactly the same as you! What are you doing people? :rolleyes:
  15. i think yorkshire could do a whitewash of all 4 sections, dont think it will be top 2 for every 1 but i think they could win all of them, they seem to be looking stronger every year, north west i think could take all the 2nd places aswell, we'll just see what happens, anyone wanna place there actual predictions on this thread?

    No predictions on this thread please, if you feel like making some predictions, I refer you to the link at the top of the screen.

  17. ive made my predictions on the thingy but we can't see everyone elses predictions, thats why i was suggestin that after they put them on the official prediction thingy that they could put them on here too so we can compare and comment on each others predictions

    All predictions will be visible from the breakdown results screen once the results are posted.

    However, I have started a discussion thread which can be found here

    I hope the parr band will do well in sll of their contests this year, coz we had a really bad season last year.

  20. i just dont see what the problem is here about whether people put their predictions on here so others can view them and compare them, isnt that how you make the build up to the finals excitin etc, i just dont know why we can't show each other our predictions before the contest has happened and the results have been announced?
