    3 weeks from today it will all be over for another year, but strangely everything is quiet on the discussion front.

    So, how are all your preparations going? Any minor (or major for that matter) disasters narrowly averted? what about predictions? and what's the full line up of bands?

    here are my predictions for 1st place in each of the sections:

    Championship: Polysteel or Lydbrook
    1st section: Cinderford or Forest of Dean
    2nd Section: Lydney
    3rd Section: Pillowell
    4th Section: Bream

    Any guesses where I am from???

    Seriously, good luck to all the forest bands. It will be strange not to be competing this year.
  2. Well I just want my band to win!!! not too worried where everyone else comes!!

    Disasters? Well only been to one rehearsal so far and only going to two more. Oh and the Conductor only accepted the task this week, so not holding out much hope really.

    Believe there are 12/13 in the 2nd section

    We're going! first time back up in the 2nd Section. New MD is still with us and........ we actually have a full band - in fact we've had to drop some players, which is quite a reverse of fortunes for us.

    Looking forward to playing on the day, don't want to tempt fate and say anything else. ;)

    Cheers K :p ,
    We're all going ot plan, only worried about that lovely leisure center acoustic and that the band will be too big for it.:tup
    Still interested about Brunel Brass - half of City of Bristol (?):confused:

    Glad to hear all is going to plan. Looks like a favourable half of the draw for you too. Perhaps you should hire Lydney Leisure Centre to get a "true sense of the acoustic of the venue" as Mr Hurdley suggested all bands should a few years ago! Hehe!

    Great test piece for the 3rd section and what a test for the man in the middle i need to learn to count better though! Could be a very close contest though but im sure my band will do ok! (Camborne B) Whats the opinion on the test piece? Ta Dave

    If as I have been informed that Bristol East and Kingswood have merged to create Brunel Brass the n how can Bristol East enter the 2nd section as well.

    or have I been miss informed and had a perfectly good thread closed for no reason

    Hi GingerMaestro
    Seems you have been miss informed, the only 2 I can see missing are Kingswood & City of Bristol.:confused:

    It is of course possible that original posting was wrong, and hopefully if that is the case someone will enlighten us. Either way, it seemed superfluous to have a specific thread on the go when there was already one running covering the West of England Area, which would seem the logical place to continue the discussion.

    Anyone know if the current standings are published anywhere - maybe 4br or BB should publish them. It would make it even more interesting if we knew who was in the promotion/relegation battles!!

    Looks like I have a good chance of hearing Pendennis this year then! :) As long as they don't get a late draw - I have a rehearsal at 1pm!

    I only wish your predictions would be somewhere close - it would be a great weekend for Gloucestershire.

    Unfortunately I don't share your optimism. I would suggest the following: -

    Championship - Mount Charles or Bournemouth
    First Section - Cinderford
    Second Section - Portishead
    Third Section - Heyl Town
    Fourth Sction - Bream Silver

    For our part, a result good enough to stay up will suffice - Prelude and Jubilate is a great piece of music and much more testing than Anglian Dances was last year in the Fourth Section.

    We will however give it our best.

    Good luck to all bands competing.
