    It's always an awesome day. Hope the weather is as good as last year, and I hope our placing is better (6th last year). Good luck to all but let the best band (us!) win!

    Looks like a pre Whit Friday Bash:biggrin: Perhaps we won't go on the coach so that we can stay and have a drink:tup Looks like Steve/Dad could be driving again!!!! (still working on the mini bus for June 9th guys, oops girls!! );)

    We're there! hope we can improve on last years results - sadly we always seem to miss Dave our conductor at this one ... yes we do watch the beat occasionally! He's the compare for the day so doesn't feel its right, nor does he have the time to conduct us!!

    Say hello if you see him! he'll think he's Mr Popular - which of course he is with us :biggrin:

    I would love to be there, (after all, Weston is where I grew up). Seems unlikely though, but you never know, maybe I will meet some of you tMP Southerners. My Dad will be there though, (the one in the gallery holding his medal from a recent music festival). If you see him, say "Hello Bill, I am from that computer thing that your son tells you about" - or words to that effect - it would make his day!

    I have always wondered why there isn`t a massive entry on all levels, Excellent place to warm up, play, good food, usually good weather, really, if you are going to do an extra contest during the year this is the one I would pick, in the south west.
