    How did Trondheim Police not win the first section with all those section/individual prizes?!
  3. Looking at it, I guess the cornets were shocking!

    We were stunned to make a clean sweep of the 2nd section prizes off a number 1 draw against such tough competition and retaining the march and soloist prize from last year.

    From What I know in our section:-
    Cranbrook played Castle Coch and New World Sketches.
    Uckfield played Punchinello and Music for a Festival.
    LGB played Suite Gothique
    Godalming played Rhapsody in Brass.

    Thanks go to John Hudson for comming over from Norway to run through the piece through with us. Hopefully he will be comming over next year.

    Cranbrook are looking for another Bb Bass and a kit player if you fancy popping down one Thursday.

    I have to also congratulate the Adjudicator whose on stage comments for the first set of results were the best I have heard in a long while - real explanations as to what he thought was good and not so good and very constructive and helpful. That went through to his written comments as well. Excellent even if you didn't like the result.

    ^ which makes for entertaining reading as long as you don't expect too much accuracy!
    Not sure how a town closer to the Country's second biggest airport than to any coastline can be 'over the Solent' from anywhere, and apparently B&HC managed to get a result at the area contest even thought they weren't there.......:rolleyes:

    Why? What was wrong with The Hawth?

    maybe its that pesky free on-site parking?
    or the total lack of stairs to slog up between warm-up, registration and stage?
    or the inconvenient location near the middle of the scaba catchment area that's so much harder for everyone to get to?
    or maybe just the fact that the venue is massively cheaper.............?

    I know, I know, some people just don't know a good thing when they see it ;)

    I know it probably made the contesting day shorter, but how many people were around for the results at 7:15? We played in the second section and weren't prepared to wait five hours for the results.

    I didn't say it wasn't a nice place or that it did anything but provide a good location, I just enjoyed Hove and Folkestone..........

    I think that refers to Shanklin Town from the Isle Of Wight!

    why the total lack of entries in top section since the switch? is Crawley harder for the Belgian pot-hunters?

    1 band isn't a 'total' lack...
    the top section entries have been poor for several years, the venue doesn't appear to have anything to do with it.

    takes two to contest though, doesn't it?

    Yep spot on. One band and one adjudicator.

    Band from Norway in a lower section suggests otherwise!
