    According to the announcement on the Kapitol website, the 2nd section is on the Sunday afternoon.

    I notice that the 4barsrest classifieds also list the regionals pieces as the set music.

    See you there Chunky.

    I'm so jealous, our band convincingly beat 4 of the 2nd section finalist bands at Butlins only a couple of months ago.
    Missed out yet again by one place - coming 3rd for the last 3 years. It should have been us - Sulk

    So sorry BigHorn! Would not swap our Butlins result for the result at area under any circumstance!

    Well, if it's any consolation, we took the area performance we were capable of on stage at Stevenage last Saturday, but we left the Butlins performance we were capable of in Staines bandroom on the Thursday night before.

    Good luck next year.

    Fantastic result for Welsh banding, and well done to all my friends at both Newbridge and Beaumaris!

    P.S. Remember Iwan, no unscheduled stops on the way home

    Da iawn Cymru!

    At least Welsh banding is in a better state than Welsh rugby!
