    I have never seen an adjudicator give someone a whopping great big hug before giving them an individual award before, certainly raised a few eyebrows from the back of the hall. Nevermind, I didnt hear her play but from what I was told she thoroughly deserved the award. Congratulations.

    i thought it was a bit fishy too... considering the conductor spoke announcing the pieces they were playing too.

    I don't want to say anything to upset anyone but is it really a coincidence that the band who had their name read out are the same band that said their name on stage at Blackpool and got away with it?

    Lynchie, we all know they are a law unto themselves. We will just have to wait for the next gob full of abuse from them before beating them yet again. Quickie for anyone in the SSBB, PYBB etc......... How fierce is the rivalry between you and your local youth bands. For some reason Enderby hate us with a passion (not just over musical matters!!!!) despite the fact they only see us twice a year.

    i'm sorry but i disagree with conductors speaking as compares, pehaps it would be okay to do it at an open contest, but at a closed one, a well known conductor could give the band's identity away.
    So could one of the band members reading out, the accent could give an insight to where the band comes from.

    I meant it;'s funny that Chris Wormald read out what they were playing, and he's a well known conductor, especially with Smithills School Bands, and that they just so happened to win...

    I don't think its fair to say that "Enderby" as a unit hate YB2000. Could it be that there are just a few who, shall we say, are jealous of the musical ability of YB and unfortunately its the loud voice of the few that you here rather than the majority? I don't think its fair to tar them all with the same brush, so to speak.
