    You might not be far off there - Redbridge and ZOB 1st and 2nd?? or either way around!

    Not sure how A & N are doing with their vacancy situations etc although they are still sure to put up a strong fight. Havn't heard much from them lately.

    Will be an interesting 1st section too...

    I don't think we can do without our lucky charm - you'll have to sneak up to the stage and sit with us

    I have heard on the grape vine that Robert Childs is no longer doing the adjudication for the champ section as he is going into hospital for an operation on the Friday before, does anyone know who is taking his place? My source didn't have that information to hand, he said it was someone with a surname beginning with H that used to play cornet for Dyke and Faireys, (Hudson? I can't think of anymore!!)

    Its David Horsfield thats doing the adjudicating for the 1st and champ section.

    If my facts are right then he was playing principle for Brighouse when Eric Ball was conducting them.

    Band secs should all have had notification of the change of adjudicator by post last week - so if yours hasn't told you yet, kick 'em!

    I've been trawling through our old records to see if Mr H has ever adjudicted us before but don't think he has - does anyone have insight into his 'style'? Any major likes or dislikes?

    LOL, and don't forget the entries in the wrong place, splits, mutes being dropped and bad ensemble playing.

    Well it's been nine years since I last played at Stevenange and the memory has diminished sufficiently for me to have my arm twisted to help out Uckfield on Bb this year. There will also be three other cornets helping out from Cranbrook who are experiencing Stevenage for the first time. I'm trying to thing of something good about it to tell them about.

    Access to the A1 to leave Stevenage by is quite easy from the Leisure Centre.
