Thread: Official National Finals Thread - The Championship Section

    Official National Finals Thread - The Championship Section

    Well, the 2006 final is now days away and I wonder who is going to tickle the fancies of the adjudicators? Will there be a surprise result this year or is Dyke going to get the double as current favourites? Bring your comments here ...

    I think it going to very open. I'll be going along to spectate (our band gets free tickets as someone works for a company who owns a box) and to the Regent hall concert after. Any tMP'ers I should look out for?

    Please move if this is off topic.

    Heard that Dyke might have a guest flugel player on the day and not who it was originally intended to be!

    Other than that, not heard too much juicy gossip.

    I think the piece will suit the more 'traditional' audience member. In our practices so far a few of our past members who have come to listen and adjudicate (!) have really enjoyed the piece with comments such as "That's what you call a real piece of music not like that <insert name of piece> that you played a few years ago - this one has got some tunes in it...".

    ..yep a Norwegian. Along with YBS's Belgian. Anymore for anymore?
    Presumably both to play for their respective "home" bands (Eikanger and Willebroek) at the European against Dyke and possibly YBS.
    Wouldnt happen in Champions League football would it?

    Apart from specialist positions such as goalkeepers, if there is no cover available. Are these players not in specialist positions?

    Looking forward to Sat

    Will Kristien be playing flugel with YBS??? It's possible, but I'd be surprised ( I haven't seen her in two weeks, but she didn't mention anything about it then). 4BarsRest has Leon Renilson as YBS flugel... Or were you talking about Bert Van Thienen on Soprano?

    Luckily enough, we're talking about music here, not sports...

    But if someone wasn't doing their job in football, they could be substituted halfway through a match - now that could be very interesting - a spare band on the subs bench to replace players when they split something

    yes I'm talking about Bert van Thienen - I am in favour of a Europe - wide registry to put a stop to this

    I believe my Champions League analogy to be perfectly valid - we're talking about 2 great competitions - not recitals - and contests need strict rules

    So, let's imagine Frank Lampard gets injured or has "prior commitments" this week - does this mean Mourinho is allowed to draft in Ronaldinho as cover? oh, and afterwards Ronaldinho will be able to play for Barca as normal.....er no.

    Supersubs or not, I have a funny feeling that a band that shows real flair may beat the others to the winning post ... maybe David King and YBS this year?

    Your analogy isn't really valid. A football team has a squad which allows them cover for every position on the field and also, if push comes to shove, people can play in other positions. Bands aren't in that position and like it or not real life gets in the way of our hobby sometimes. We're talking about an amateur contest in which the prize money is less than one day of Frank Lampard's wages! I'd be more concerned with the fact that their aren't enough quality players around and audiences keep dropping for contests than making more rules.

    I wouldn't say that there aren't enough quality players around, maybe they are just not interested in playing in brass bands.
