    The M5 is closed for at least 24 hours.... If you are going this way, you need to go a different way, so all bands need to set off earlier, etc, good luck to you early kick offs. Really bad crash, in fog, at least 25 vehicals. 11 pm

    Just got back to Bournemouth, what a fab day!

    I only managed to get a few results:

    4th Section (First Suite in Eb Holst)

    Turned out to be a real tricky test for most bands, especially soprano cornets! Launceston and Midsomer were close to each other and great that both bands did so well for very different reason - Launceston came onto the stage with a very young but confident band whilst this was only Midsomer's 2nd contest!

    1) Launceston Town Cond Dave Dobson
    2) Midsomer Norton & radstock cond Joanne Sykes
    3) Tiverton Town Cond Gil Taylor
    4) Wincanton Silver - Cond Dave Bertie

    Third Section Saint-Saens Variations Sparke

    Weston were drawn 1st and managed to get through the huge traffic problems to get on stage on time (only just though by all accounts).

    1) Weston Brass
    2) Sidmouth Town
    3) Bream Silver
    4) South Milton
    5) Downton
    6) Pillowell Silver

    I have to say, it was my Brother in law who gave me this info whilst I was on the M5 and he had consumed drink :), I assumed Aldbourne had won, next time I will contact someone sober :)

    2nd Section result:
    1. St Pinnock
    2. Bugle
    3. Bodmin
    4. City of Bristol
    5. Soundhouse
    6. Phoenix

    8. Heyl

    Great day for Weston winning the 3rd Section and even 7th in the 2nd wasn't too disappointing given the positive adjudicator's remarks.
