    Of course. First rule of band contests, it's only a duff result when you lose :-?

    Mind you, I bet knitting contests, bake-offs, banjo competitions, dog shows, etc. etc. etc. are the same.

    Please, please, please, anything but Gilbert Vinter. I like the pieces (most of them) but not to rehearse for a contest. We'd spend most of the time correcting the mistakes.
