    This is the official tMP discussion thread for the London and Southern Counties Area of the forthcoming Regional Championships of Great Britain.

    Feel free to discuss your thoughts and predictions for each section within the Area - but don't forget to enter the tMP Predictions Competition - for your chance to contribute to the overall tMP Predictions (plus a chance to win one of the first copies of 'The Mouthpiece' - the winning march composed by Darrol Barry). Please note, that any predictions posted within this thread do not contribute towards the competition. Details of the tMP Predictions Competition can be found here:

    We also ask that when the results for the various sections are announced, they are posted in this thread, and not posted as brand new threads - it has the potential to become extremely messy should this be the case. We will be creating and maintaining a complete set of results for viewing on the tMP Portal as they happen.

    You just beat me to it! I was also wondering what has happened to City of Oxford? I thought there were supposed to be 12 bands in the Championship section.

    City degegistered, which is a shame for the area, on a local and national level. Im sure they will be back soon! :biggrin:

    IYOUNG Member

    City of Oxford as I understand it are no longer in existence.
  7. NeilW

    NeilW Member

    They do still exist, and are still playing concerts (e.g. at Brize Norton tomorrow evening)

    However, shortage of players has meant that contesting this year wasn't going to be possible, so the band didn't register this year.

    The other 2 bands in the City of Oxford Silver Band organisation are also still running (Oxford Templars and the Beginners band).

    Apologies Neil - I stand corrected

    I thought that they were already in that section :rolleyes:

    Just to give Will the Sec some inspiration, "there's only one F in Fulham" :clap:

    I'm starting to get really excited (and bit anxious) about the areas. This whole relegation/promotion/nationals thing really makes this contest much more important than any contest I've been in before. Usually it's like do you win or not...maybe did we beat that one band.

    This year its like...
    1st place: London Champions and RAH
    2nd place: Get to go to RAH
    3rd place - 4th place: Stay up in Champcionship section another year (party time)
    5th - 8th place: Do we stay up...get out a calculator
    9th - 10th: Down to first section

    So much to play for!! WOW!!

    Don't panic yet Pat, its not as bad as you think! Oxford are still in the system, so they'll get 1 point more than last place (12 assuming Northfleet are going) and on points that means they should definitely go down. If I've done the maths right, even if you guys came last (which I'm sure you won't!) it doesn't guarantee relegation - it will depend where the others are placed.

    I'm not sure City of Oxford are "in the system" this year, as they are not registered at all - they are not simply a "did not enter" which would merit an "entries +1" score.

    In the system = still on the L&SC grading tables. Sorry, should have explained better!

    As far as I know, Northfleet have entered and will be competing.

    Not paniced...just excited (If WGC get sent down, I probably won't be around for the 1st section days. Would still hate to see it happen on my watch though)
  17. And there's no f in pencils. Can I deduce from this your less than tacit support on the day LBB?
  18. Accidental

    Accidental Supporting Member

    I thought so too - that's good to hear!
    If it is the case, I'm surprised noone from that band has noticed they're not on the lists here or for predictions though :-?
  19. DublinBass

    DublinBass Supporting Member

    Unfortunately Paul, I believe you'll have my tacit support that day :frown: (Unless you have a late draw)

    I think our band will be rehearsing in Welwyn when the fourth section is playing.

    Does anybody else get frustrated that with the morning of rehearsals, immense weight times to get in the registration room, then in the registration room, then time taken to pack becomes difficult to see your friends bands and support them?

    The Matthews band have withdrawn. We were unable to get a Bb Bass player :(
