    I have just been on the Wychavon website,and it has got the list of bands entered for the contest so far. The entries for the contest close this Saturday. Having been for the last 2 years it is a contest definately worth considering going to. Sadly at the moment Flowers don't appear to be on the list, shame the last 2 years they have been great.

    Well this year it's Evesham School went in 2002 to watch. Nothing very remarkable about the place just takes you back to when you were in secondary school. But they do have a beer tent usually!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It has been open adjudication since I've been going (last 5 years) - One year, the band I was conducting was drawn first and we were ushered into the hall by the steward only to find that the adjudicator wasn't there!!! He had a hell of a shock when he was escorted into the hall to find a band all ready and waiting for him.

    Wotton will be there too, in the 3rd section, I always enjoy the contest, because it`s a nice town to visit and I always see a few old friends.
    look out for the most gorgeous BBb Bass player you have ever seen, it won`t be me.
    We have a nice program and I look foward to play it, though by the look of it there are a few good bands in our section, so it will be a good test for all of us.

    Hi Nick, how are you? Yes, there is a pre-draw, I think it has always been open adjudication though?????

    It is always a good day out, say hello if you see me, Kate will be there too.

    Best of luck
