I don't want to drag you away from this fantastic Forum, but the folks at 4BarsRest.com have advised me that they are drawing the curtain down on the Normans sponsored Free Maestro Cornet competition on Friday 17 October 2003. To make it as fair as possible and so that no one can listen to the competing bands on the Saturday before making a late entry, all submissions must be in by Friday. After all, we don't want to make it as easy for you as it will be for the Adjudicators, do we!!!! Someone (although not anyone from Normans or 4BarsRest.com :cry: ) will win this Maestro Cornet. Unlike a similar competition a few years ago, you don't have to predict all top six bands in the correct order. This time, points will be awarded for each placing you predict correctly (6 pts for 1st place, 5 for 2nd place etc.) and the prize will be won by the person with the most points. In the event of a tie, all equal highest entrants will be placed in a hat and first out will be the winner. Nice and simple. So go on, what have you got to lose?
