    Let me be the first to congratulate SNCB, having had the pleasure of representing the band last year at Dundee i can say their win is thoroughly deserved, and having listened to a number of bands today, I think they were definitely a level higher than the others I heard.

    Well done.

    I'm from Clifton, and i am rather... (i'll hold my toungue) shocked, and very dissapointed. I was convinced we'd played better than that, though i only managed to listen properly to band number 9, and band number 5, which stood out a mile with this corker of a whoopsie...
    I was wondering what anyone else thought to this, before we get read the remarks on tuesday.

    I thought the top two, Slaithwaite and SNC, were clearly the top two.

    I thought we deserved better than 7th. 6?5?4th at best. We lost out on bottom end tunning! no matter, we may well be visiting the 4th section for a couple of years, but we'll be back stronger. It's only a brass band contest after all!!!

    Cheers Straightmute,

    Can't wait!! I'll be within staggering distance of home :D

    Only trouble is, if I don't come up with some hotel recommendations soon, I'm going to have the whole band kipping at my place...arrrgh!

    I thought that about us... but heck, who wants to go to Harrogate anyway? :p

    I heard a number of the bands, I thought you and huddersfield (especially having top cornet solo prize) were unlucky and dare I say it maltby were a bit lucky... but i guess thats the way contests go.

    Along with official groupie of Silk Brass, and no doubt some other band somewhere...

    I went off to the bar with yorkshire_pud for a few and to see maltby people then went home for a rehearsal in the evening.

    Quite a number of people figured we were very unlucky... i myself can't believe it. Our listeners didnt think huddersfield would get best solo, not over us. I think its a bit strange to be honest...

    I was wondering... how long were the remarks of the bands that played after us? Craddock missed quite size-able chucks of music comment from our remarks, including the fact that we had our sop player, who was sharp, playing a solo cornet section, whome was originally in tune. And it's almost as if he didnt listen past U...
    I know it seems like sour grapes, but it's troubling me.

    Is an adjudicator employed to write extensive remarks or to listen to each band and place them in order of merit?

    Good question! It can be very annoying though to have nothing said about huge bits of your performance when you have worked so hard on it.

    Well done by the way!!

    It was the same in the 1st section, very little was said about large sections of the peice.. Agreed adjudicators are not there to write lots, but it really helps a band to understand why they came where they came, especially if it's a bad result. Just leaving out large chunks begs the question was he really listening? did we play it so well he couldn't find fault? Its a tough line to draw, if the adjudicator is too critical it can demoralise the band (we had it a bit in dundee last year), but then again if he says nothing you don't feel you can learn from your mistakes and don't know where to build upon it to get a better result next time around.

    that's what i think anyway.

    I agree with you really Tim. I just feel that we've been cheated out of knoweledge of the problems we had, s'all.
