    Lochgelly too - in the middle one!

    And Kirkie in the big one!
  6. We are in the top one (i think!) and the piece is superb! wish it was the area piece aswell!

    Can you imagine how happy I would be if it was?

    I could easily play St Magnus at every contest next is better than Salute to Youth!

    I'm led to believe that it almost was but for the fact its being used at the Scottish Open.

    I think the line up for the challenge cup may have changed from those qualifying, as at least one band declined the invite and has been replaced with the next in line. If I find out more I'll let you know.

    Scottish Challenge Cup
    Dalkeith & Monktonhall
    Annan Town
    St. David's Brass

    Thanks John. The alterations have been made so those of you who have made your predictions and will be affected by these changes need to have another look in that crystal ball and pop back along to Prediction Central. :)

    Scottish Open running late and I had to get the last bus back from Perth (20:10) :-? Good day and friendly atmosphere. Kenneth Downie also in the audience and I thought two performances stood out amongst the others (... so far ...) - Pemberton Old and Scottish Co-op. Surprised 4BR aren't doing a live review as they are there in strength.

    (I left after the Co-op played)
