This morning I was reading the news articles on 4barsrest and noticed one of the news items which was about the welsh league contest. It would appear that support for the league is poor and especially so with regard to the contest in Fishguard. I can't help but wonder if the choice in contest venue for the wwbba contest was a silly one. Fishguard is so far from civilisation and all bands that attend the welsh league are lesser bands, therefore they don't have access to the same sort of funds as the likes of Tredegar and Cory. How are bands in the rest of the principality supposed to be able to attend a contest held so far away? Perhaps also some of the bigger bands in wales could also be criticised.. I've not attended a welsh league contest as (and no offence intended here) there aren't any bands I would want to hear. The best I could hope to hear would probably be burry port or city of cardiff, if I (and I suspect many others) were to attend we would want to hear the best welsh bands and not the worst. What I would like to know is why is the contest being held at such a poor location and why the poor level of support from the premier bands in wales? It's hardly surprising that support for this event is dire and as a result it is probably a contest soon to be lost to history.
