    As a fairly newcomer to the area I was suprised at the following!! (Also taken from 4barsrest website...)

    "The Championships are unique in the brass band movement, as no monetary awards have ever been made to the winning bands, and the Association is extremely proud that its member bands continue to show such loyalty to their Association"

    I'll be there playing with Lympstone of course...and supporting St Stythians in the second section...and St Austell in the open section - but only a little bit (don't want to support the rivals too much!). :biggrin:

    'fraid not, I'm off to pontins with The Emley.......Oh dear i feel so northern! Saying that i might not even be going to pontins if i don't get through the mountain of planning i have to do!
    Good luck to all the cornish bands- I would love to see Pendennis win again! :)

    But of course I shall be supporting South Molton my favourite North Devon band.... and their brand new front row cornet player! :D See you on Saturday Nic! :D

    PS: Why not take 'magic' water? Much cheaper than buying drinks.... even though a pint of coke is about a fiver in the riviera centre!

    We might not even get chance to drink, depends on our draw .... I have everything crossed that we don't get last draw!
