Has everybody read the recent report by ABBA regarding issues in adjudication?... http://www.satiche.org.uk/abba/ahts.pdf What do people think of this? My view: There is absolutely nothing new in here. If we have people at the 'top' of the brass band world with such closed minds producing this sort of drivel, we need a completely new start - new people, new ideas, new systems, new attitudes. Unfortunately, I can't see this happening in my lifetime - and I'm only 45! What this document reminds me of is the sort of junk produced by my local dysfunctional parish council. Stan Lippeat and his cohorts should be ashamed of producing such tatt. Does anybody have any better, more useful ideas?
