    I have not see anything at all about this contest which is on at St Helens next weekend. Anyone any idea as to who is entering?

    Boarshurst Silver are in the 3rd section as too are Stalybridge Old I believe.

    I was under the impression that you were not allowed to name the piece you were playing on the web site unless you wanted to let the adjudicator know which band is playing which piece. That is surely giving advantage to certain bands that name their piece.We are not in that section so it does not affect our band.

    Indeed, you are correct. That one is last year's thread, which I have now locked.

    Carry on.

    Am am pleasantly surprised to see Imps and Hammonds there. As far as I can remember, it hasn't attracted bands of their pedigree previously.

    yeah.. i think it will be good for the competition, people seeing names arriving, more people will come and watch, also, it adds a bit of colour to the top sections, making it that little bit more interesting, and giving the 1st section bands something to aim for..:tup

    Also should be a pot in there for you?? Whats prize money, as I feel there's no prestige there for yourselves. Whats the motive? I mean this with the utmost respect.

    im not sure.. i think its just to get the contest season under way.. and to get abit of experience under the belts for new players..

    Seems to me to be an excellent idea, especially for a band that's had as many changes as Hammonds has had in recent years. It's a contest environment where the band has a chance to blend together without having the pressure of performing where a poor showing will affect the band's grading in the future.

    Regardless of the quality of the new(er) players in the band, experience on the stage is invaluable and impossible to come by without actually being on the stage.
