Ah you beat me to it!!

Mind you I was going to be slightly biased and say Well Done Wetherby!
But it really was well done everyone.

A great day with great music, what more can you ask for.

Looking forward to next year!

Did you all like the idea of the new format.

If so let us know at yhbba@aol.com and we will see if it could be feasable to make the entertainment side of it in to a regular feature.
