I have just heard on the grapevine that it is the second section`s "turn" to endure the dodgy acoustic of the glorified sports hall, next to the main hall at the Riviera Centre at the forthcoming West of England Area Contest. A decision a tad surprising after last years controversy re. the fourth section,where the acoustic in my opinion encouraged a rather "eccentric adjudication", which in turn led to a lot of ill feeling from some of the competing bands, who were wrongfully accused of cheating by the adjudicator. I only hope that the Area Commitee`s decision to use this hall again does not come back to haunt them. I.H. Tavistock. Devon.
