    Yes... these are not in detail though... just what I can remember.

    3rd section - Cobham won a lot of stuff.

    Youth Section - Shankling Town Youth won a lot of stuff.

    2nd section - Uckfield won (well done all my mates at UCB) :clap:
    Hangleton came 2nd, LGB came 3rd.

    I had a lot of fun but was disappointed not to be allowed to wear my bunny ears on stage!

    Indeed, apologies. Although in BBM's defence the results were relayed to him by phone from a very noisy celebratory dressing area immediately after the results.

    Congratulations to Tilbury and BAE in the 1st Section and also to Uckfield in the 2nd.

    Good day for us. Well chuffed.;)

    Agreed - and from the performances I heard a very good result overall for southern Brass Banding,

    Well done everyone, including Friary Guildford, despite their last place....... ;)

    Good result for Brass a Musica (4th in 1st section)
    It's a new band (they did compete in the Belgian Nationals for the first time last year),a nd I was a bit surprised that they were competing in the first section (in the Belgian nationals they played in 3rd section I believe). but they have some quality players...

    :tongue: cheek!

    At least we were there supporting the association...
    We could have picked an easy piece and just gone through the motions but decided to risk it instead and were really pleased with how it went. The band played well and our BM Andy Porter did a great job, so all in all not a bad day ;)

    All in all a great day. The first SCABA Spring Cointest I have done since, I think, 1995! Pity not more bands had entered, or is this the norm these days?

    I don't think it helps that the areas were so close.

    Yes, apperantly that's was the general consensus of opinion I heard. perhaps if they had the Entertainments Contest, say in june and the Spring Contest, say in May, then more bands will be able to compete(be still in Spring!).
