    was it just me or did anyone else think the "Most potential" award was just SLIGHTLY patronising?

    More of a 'I've placed you last and this is a vain attempt to make myself feel better' award?

    kind of like the best soloist award that they always gave to the loosing band in the final of the old BBC Radio 2 Youth Brass Band Championships ;) :)

    haha well if it was over a couple of years ago, i don't think there was a youth soloist around that would have come close to geoghagey baby :D

    Sorry, i have to disagree. Matt Gee was awesome that night and every other night he decides to pick up his trombone. More than a match for any player.

    i know, i was there, just my opinion :p

    i know u dont mean any harm guys but that "most potential" award was a tribute to a close friend and a parent of one of the people in Rochdale Youth Band who died suddenly last year. :cry:
     
  11. Dolly

    Dolly Member

    I'm not dissin the award but they made it patronising by turning it into a consolation prize. Surely the band with most potential is in the top 5 or so and has the most potential to win next year etc etc

    It's normally just given to the youngest band isnt it...
     
  13. Dolly

    Dolly Member

    How can they give it to the youngest band when he cant see how old they are. Isnt it judged on music?
     
  14. Aidan

    Aidan Active Member

    depends which contest you are on about :)
    is it closed adudication at action research...?
    from personal experience i was on about the music for youth festival at the RFH.
     
  15. Dolly

    Dolly Member

    Well music is judged on closed, entertainment on open obviously. But the most potential is given based on music and by the music adjudicator

    righto :tup

    i think they just gave it to the band that came last to avoid tears on the coach...

    Dolly Member

    Exactly well doesnt that defeat the object

     
  19. Aidan

    Aidan Active Member

    don't think it is given to the band who could win it next year... i may be wrong :p but thats why i assumed it was given by an open adjudication, as it always seems to go to the primary school bands etc.. it would always go the youngest band, as obviously they would have more potential to acheive better, being younger!

    G'wan nadia!!!

    Kids need encouragement not disappointment. so what if it's given to make people feel better or so you say. at the end of the day it's still an award given to people who are young and need encouragement.

    But i guess you're all far too good players to realise this.


    Hope your bands don't win it in the future since you're obviously too good for a patronising award like that.
