    Just to get things going nice and early. Mind you it's only 4 and a half weeks off. So, let's have some random guesses at the top six for London. Remember, no YBS or Grimey!

    My guess:

    1) Cory
    2) B&R
    3) Fairey
    4) Fodens
    5) Dyke
    6) Scottish Co-op

    Full list of bands (I think!):

    Alliance Brass
    Ever Ready
    Scottish Co-op

    1) Dyke. The sound / The Hall / The Piece / Sop, Euph & Top Man.
    2) B & R.
    3) Cory
    4) Fodens
    5) Fairies
    6) Leyland

    The Draw will (as always) be important.

    Re: NATIONALS...


    Are you on commission or something? You would have Dyke to win the Grand National if you could have your way.

    Having read your posts about Dyke before I thought I would pay particular attention to their sound at the Open as you kept raving on about it. I have to say that, whilst they have an excellent sound, it was nowhere near the quality that YBS were pumping out. Mind you I thought Dyke's bass section were quality.

    As for my guesses, here goes......

    1) Faireys
    2) Dyke
    3) Cory
    4) Flowers
    5) B & R
    6) Fodens

    Time for the west of england to make a mark back at the big contests. Flowers could be the ones to do it even though their percussion section is mightily dodgy. Still not too much percussion in this piece for them to worry about. :wink:

    Mutsuj (Justum backwards, check out Dyke motto) plays for Dyke methinks... and it always pays to be confident! :) The two bands that beat them at the Open aren't there either.

    How could I not put you in my top six luce :wink: I'm not putting us in mine 'cause I didn't want to jynx it (again!) hehe. There's no major solos as such (none as hairy as the ones in Venus anyway), it's all just general band sound, quiet playing in Nimrod etc, musical style and one heck of a blow in the finale!
