    You do know it's the Clifton and Lightcliffe 'B' band ? The Senior band are second section and not eligable for this contest.

    Yep - see IJK's post - it's in draw order.

    Looking forward to Thurlstone's debut at this competition and getting the opportunity to perform in such a lovely venue.

    Good luck all - see you there!

    Yes the results say that the penalties were for being over time in each case, 1pt per minute or part of. Limit was 20mins.

    I can confirm that 'Dobcross Band' are very much alive and kicking and will be in full view on Whit Friday both during the day with the Whit Walks and also in the evening at the contests.

    I am in regular contact and they are very strong with a full band.

    I believe that Nick Payne is taking the out on Whit Friday with their new M.D. Ken Pain taking over immediately afterwards.

    As the contest organiser I must give a big thankyou to the ireland Colliery Chesterfield and the Bearpark & Esh bands for the loan of their snare drums after the resident one went defective. This is friendly banding at its best, many thanks.

    I hope everyone had a great day out as well as taking part in the contest. From my point of view everyone was great, the contest finished on time mainly thanks to the bands being very well organised.

    The contest results as posted by the running man are absolutely correct.

    Provisional date for 2012 is Sat 2nd June.

    Ripon City played:

    March - Arnhem
    Stal Himmel
    The Nightingale - soloist Michael Lumsdon
    Hymn - Amazing Grace
    Finale from Faust

    Well done everyone, thanks for making my job easy on the day.
