    Not very many bands competing (only 6), So even guessing blindly you have a 1 in 720 chance of getting all six right ;)

    Who do you think will finish where? My guess is...

    1. Brass Band Central Florida
    2. Illinois Brass Band
    3. Prairie Brass Band
    4. Dearham Brass Band (UK)
    5. Motor City Brass Band
    6. Fountain City Brass Band

    (although I might keep an eye out for Prarie to upset IBB)

    That's right, I think they are trying to get at least 1 UK band each year. Last year was Fodens.

    Now come along and take a guess. Like I said there is a 1 in 720 of getting them al right if you guess blindly. (Perhaps a little better if you know any of the bands)

    1. Prairie
    2. Florida
    3. Dearham
    4. Illinois
    5. Fountain City

    I think if you'd've swapped 1 and 2 you'd have a better shot, but it's not impossible. Right now is looks like you'll be in the top 2 for sure ;) !!

    Actually, you never know, you could very well get more right than me!!

    I predict that LBB will be the Brit drinking the most alcohol before making a report for a well known brass band web site...

    If you're going, look out for the Houston Brass Band people.

    Anne and Bob are doing great things with a young band (less than 5 years old) and Bob especially will be thrilled to talk to anyone about anything banding. Look out for the T shirts...

    I know Houston isn't competing, but are a group of them going for the festivities?
