    Dear Jan,

    It was an exciting battle, am looking forward to next year (with hopefully a more fortunate result for us ;-))

    The fact is that all Dutch championship section bands are of a relatively comparable level (Except maybe for Amsterdam Brass, ithout wanting to offend anyone). So any band can win any year
