    I think Mossley band can feel a bit hard done by, they played with a good sound on a day where a number of bands chose to razz their preverbials off (this approach doesn't work in the spanish hall), some very good playing and compared to some other performances I heard I didn't think it was that low down.

    Well done to my mate John who played sop, he played a blinder.

    Also well done to Chester le Street and Horden (both had some super euph playing, and in Horden's case the judges agreed )

    Well done to all at Staines - I reckoned you would shake things up a bit, now roll on the Albert Hall!

    Having just read the "live" crits on 4bars rest and been present through most of the Senior trophy contest I've got to say whoever was doing the crit must have spent a while in the galleon because most of the remarks were seriously off the mark. I thought Kingdom Brass were the best performance of the day by a fair margin and Staines a close second then BHK Horden and Laganvale following on from there. I was not too far from the Adjudicators thoughts, however it just proves that adjudication should be left to the professionals and not the self appointed. Well done to the top 4 in each contest.

    Fantastic Result, I thought the standard was very high and was chuffed to bits when I heard the results.

    Oh yes, and that was after our three circuits round the winter gardens trying to find the rest of the band!
    Never regret. If it's good it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience.

    What a day, and what a fantastic result for Kingdom Brass and Craig Anderson. As has already been said, just reward I think for all the hard work that's been going on through an extremely busy few months for the band.
    Roll on the next contest! Oh and by the way John, that pint you were on about went all over my jacket. Who cares, WE WON!

    Congratulations to Kingdom Brass, I never heard you play but you obviously gave what the audjudicators wanted.

    If competitions were won on 'hard work' then 'just rewards' would be for every band to win, don't you think?

    ...and why the anonimity at 4barsrest this year? They have always campaigned for openness and clarity so this seems a backwards step in my opinion.

    Having said that, if I'd penned the following line about St Austell's performance:

    "A mixed bag here. Untidy ensemble but the ensemble work is good"

    I'd probably keep quiet about it too.

    Couldn't agree more David. I read this to my sister (Solo Horn) over the phone, and I think her response was something like "Shows how much attention they were paying by that point in the day then!" (They played last band on)
    Perhaps it's one of those Welsh grammatical points? Does ensemble have two meanings that side of the border?
