    What an ace weekend :D

    Well done to those that turned up. It's still my favourite banding event of the year.

    Wow, ten years already?

    It would probably make more sense to promote more up from the 3rd to second and 4th to third than try and relegate more bands down from the 1st. 18 seems like a fairly "normal" size for a large area...

    Hi Adam,

    I think the venue is more than adequate for a smallish contest but will struggle if more bands turn up. The social area isn't too bad a size but perhaps they needed an extra barperson or...
