    Just had a read of's letters page this month... Seems the 3rd section wasn't the only one to receive its share of controversy.

    But here's a snippet of one I found VERY interesting...

    Interesting... any comments on this one?

    Also interesting is the comment slightly further down re: the infamous 3rd section result... But I'll let you find that one yourself. :)

    Anyway, Blackpool this Sunday... looking forward to it!

    Onward and upwards... :D

    There was also considerable discussion around this on the Brass Band Forum, under the heading "Contraversy (sic) at Brass at the Guild Hall". There was some disagreement over whether the band's name and/or number was actually spoken, but it seems incredible that such a problem should arise in an own choice contest where, presumably, the adjudicators have been furnished with a score that shows clearly the recommended instrumentation. If the protest was lodged by another band then they should have known better.
