    OMG! OMG! OMG! WE WON! :D:D:D:D Today was absolutely amazing! Even if we had a mad panicky rush getting from rehearsal to the winter gardens to play by 12 and then we didn't play til gone half past anyway! :tongue: Can't believe we got a number 1 draw, we must have still been full of adrenaline from the rush! We played ok.... I really wasn't expect us too win though! Obviously Mr Lippeat liked us though! and I now like him a LOT! :tongue:

    I have never bounced and screamed and hugged so much in all my life! IT WAS AMAZING!!! ARGHHHHHHH!!! :D:D:D:D

    I also want to say massive huge well done and congrats to Portishead! You sounded fab! :D

    A very excited and bouncy fi :tongue:

    Thanks Fi!!! Well done to the SM mafia too! unfortuantly wasn't able to hear you as we came into the school as you were rushing off! :tongue:
    Well done to our band Portishead we knew we could win it and we showed that we can!
    Unclucky tylostown (sp?) and lympstone and to people i met from lympstone! :biggrin:
  17. Can confirm Chris that it was 180 points. A great performance from us on the day and excellent work from all players, especially soloists and our MD. It wasn't perfect but enjoyable to play and great comments from audience members too which is always a bonus.

    Great comments too TMP nice to hear your opinions. Maybe next year we can try and get everyone to bring a score and make things a little easier for you. By your comments too the 2nd Section !

    Congratulations tMP

    I have just been reading through some of the adjudications from Weston and I must say well done to you for a very well presented, constructive and accurate job done. Some of our official adjudicators could take note from what you have done.

    And mainly all done without the use of a score

    :clap: Well Done:clap:
