    Thanks Alex. Some striking results there - Medway can't be happy - but a bold choice to go in to a top section contest with Tournament for Brass this side of Thatcher's premiership. It's still hard, and great music, but you just don't get contesting credit for playing it well, as we found out in the Leicester 1st section a couple of years ago.

    Thanks Dave. We knew it was a risk, and it didn't come off. There's no wemijemihemidemisemiquavers and top Zs but there's a lot of unison, rubato, solos, duets trios, etc that are challenging. I'm not going to comment on the result though because I only heard two other bands and it's always difficult to judge your own performance objectively through the fog of beating heart and a sweaty brow.

    Thanks everyone so far. As stands, we are currently missing pieces for:

    Crystal Palace

    Not far off now! No points recorded - is this a 'pointless' contest?

    scaba test piece contest have been pointless for a while now.

    I can remember Stantonbury Festival (Shanklin?), Oceans, Henry V & Triumphant Rhapsody yesterday, but not which bands played them, sorry.
    I'm pretty sure its at this point after every contest that I say I must write them all down next time..... :rolleyes:
