Well done all at Dronfield excellent result for you - I only heard 5 bands in your section (1st 4 +Bestwood) and thought Thurcroft had the edge on your performance - however only one result that counts. What did people think about the seating arrangement of Bestwood (cornets on right in front of troms with basses, euphs then horns on left giving a bells out format)? I understand that this may have been in preparation for the venue of their areas (Bellverdier(sp?) Club) where there are extensive amounts of curtains which presumably absorb a great deal of sound. I wonder what the adjudicator thought in the box when sounds that would normally come from the left entered his right ear and vice versa? Or do those curtains around the box muffle this up. Richard did you get any comments from the adjudicator on this?
