Oberoesterreich are unhappy following the Europeans whilst Newbridge Celynen have "taken it on the chin" after a tough week at the Spring Festival and the Tredegar contest (see relevant threads). Three youth bands entered the Junior Section at the Tredegar contest and all received a Gold Award. GREAT!! NOBODY LOST!! But isn't an ability to handle setbacks an important life skill? Don't youngsters need to learn how to take it on the chin?
